If you are suffering from acute short term neck pain that is usually associated with and auto accident, fall, or other injury, I have great news for you! In a recent study[i] 94 percent of individuals in the study were satisfied with chiropractic with their pain decreasing significantly.
The majority of the patients, in the study, went to the chiropractor following an accident and 89% of those where car crashes where neck whiplash is extremely prevalent. There are of course other ways that you can get whiplash like being tackled or an amusement park ride, just to name a few.
Pre-treatment pain was almost four times greater than after their chiropractic care was completed. Average pain levels, of an 11 point pain scale, were at 7.5 before treatment and 1.9 immediately following care and a 1.6 a year later.
Satisfaction of Care was the pinnacle of the study with 94 percent of patients reporting being satisfied with their care with 70 percent being very satisfied, while 5 percent where somewhat satisfied and 1 percent where somewhat dissatisfied, and no one was dissatisfied or very dissatisfied.
Another interesting note from this study was that of the 32 percent that were referred for co-management mostly to medical doctor’s and massage therapists, 83% stated the provider who helped the most was the Doctor of Chiropractic.
