Over 2 million people are injured each year in motor vehicle collisions in the U.S. While some people are able to recover from their injuries relatively easily, many folks are left to deal with chronic pain and impairment. We see many of these patients here in our Springfield office. Fortunately, Dr. Zapf is here to help you heal from your auto injury.
The science confirms what we see in our office: A British study was conducted on 28 men and women 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 healing time, so getting in to see Dr. Zapf at the earliest opportunity is key to having a quicker recovery.
Dr. Zapf has helped many auto injury sufferers, and we're here to help you, too. Call our Springfield office today for more information or an appointment.
