Chronic Pain, Car Crashes, and Chiropractic

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 folks are left to deal with chronic pain and impairment. We see many of these patients here in our Shoreview, MN office. Thankfully, Dr. Jane Steffen Bye 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 experienced pain 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 long-term pain after an auto injury.

It's important to note that research has also found that putting off care after a car crash can negatively affect recovery time, so getting in to see Dr. Jane Steffen Bye as soon as possible is key to having a quicker recovery.

Dr. Jane Steffen Bye has worked with many auto injury sufferers, and we're here to help you, too. Call our Shoreview, MN office today for more information or an appointment.
