Approximately 2.3 million people are hurt each year in automobile accidents in the U.S. While most people are able to heal from their injuries relatively quickly, many are left to deal with chronic pain and impairment. We see many of these patients here in our Port Coquitlam office. Luckily, Dr. Olson is here to help you heal from your auto injury.
The science confirms what we see in our office: A British study was carried out on 28 men and women diagnosed with chronic whiplash pain. Each participant received chiropractic care and 93 percent of them experienced pain relief following their adjustments, even though 43 percent of whiplash sufferers overall usually never find relief. This confirms that chiropractic care is a great way to avoid long-term pain after a crash.
It's important to remember that studies have also found that putting off care after a car crash can negatively affect healing time, so getting in to see Dr. Olson immediately is key to having a speedier recovery.
Dr. Olson has helped many auto injury patients, and we're here to help you, too. Call our Port Coquitlam office today for more information or an appointment.
