Over 2 million people are injured each year in automobile accidents in the U.S. While some people are able to heal from their injuries relatively quickly, many folks are left to deal with chronic pain and disability. We see many of these patients here in our Mid-Wilshire, LA office. Thankfully, Dr. Joseph Hakimi 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 syndrome. 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 care is a great way to avoid long-term pain after a crash.
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. Joseph Hakimi as soon as possible is key to having a speedier recovery.
Dr. Joseph Hakimi has worked with many auto injury patients, and we’re here to help you, too. Call our Mid-Wilshire, LA office today for more information or an appointment.
