A Powerful & Strong Finding For Whiplash Injury Treatment

Friday, July 7th, 2017

Why They Did It

Whiplash is a common issue following motor vehicle accidents. The authors of this paper estimate 43% of crash victims will go on to experience long-term suffering from whiplash injuries. The authors wanted to explore the efficacy of chiropractic treatment in such circumstances.

How They Did It

  • The study was a retrospective study.
  • Chronic whiplash patients were accepted into the study.
  • The chiropractic treatment group consisted of 28 patients.
  • The severity of the whiplash injury was assessed at the baseline via the Gargan & Bannister classification system.

What They Found

  • 93% of the test subjects improved after undergoing the chiropractic protocol.

Wrap It Up

The results of this study were so promising and favorable for Chiropractic treatment in whiplash, the authors felt a randomized controlled trial comparing the treatment with conventional treatment was warranted to explore it further.

Just another reason to call a chiropractor TODAY!

Research and clinical experience shows that, in about 80%-90% of headaches, neck, and back pain, in comparison to the traditional medical model, patients get good or excellent results with Chiropractic. Chiropractic care is safe, more cost-effective, it decreases your chances of having surgery, and it reduces your chances of becoming disabled. We do this conservatively and non-surgically. In addition, we can do it with minimal time requirements and minimal hassle on the part of the patient. And, if the patient develops a “preventative” mindset going forward from initial recovery, we can likely keep it that way while raising the general, overall level of health!
