Research Suggests Chiropractic Helps Recovery After an Accident
According to a Canadian research conducted in Canadian research paper (Dies S.) cited that (MVA) motor vehicle accidents are a major cause of spinal injuries treated by Chiropractors. Results showed that patients who received Chiropractic care immediately, received a higher level of improvement than those who delayed the process. It also found that for patient’s who were injured in a car accident, the average number of Chiropractic treatments given was 14. Those patients who complained of headaches or low back pain required more treatments than average.
