Over 2 million people are injured each year in automobile accidents in the U.S. While most people are able to recover from their injuries fairly easily, many are left to deal with chronic pain and impairment. We see many of these patients here in our Rochester Hills, MI office. Thankfully, Dr. Dalton is here to help you recover from your auto injury.
The science confirms what we see in our office: A British study was conducted on 28 people diagnosed with chronic whiplash pain. Each participant received chiropractic treatment and 93 percent of them found relief following their adjustments, even though 43 percent of whiplash sufferers overall usually never find relief. This confirms that chiropractic is a great way to avoid chronic pain after an auto injury.
It's important to note that studies have also found that putting off care after a car crash can adversely affect recovery time, so getting in to see Dr. Dalton immediately is key to having a speedier recovery.
Dr. Dalton has worked with many auto injury sufferers, and we're here to help you, too. Call our Rochester Hills, MI office today for more information or an appointment.
Chiropractors, often considered alternative or complementary medicine practitioners, are primary care doctors who focus on good health through proper nutrition, exercise, and other lifestyle factors. The chiropractic philosophy is based on the idea that when nerves emerging from the spinal cord are compromised (known as a subluxation), the affected individual might experience pain, disability and an overall decrease in the quality of life.
