According to the Insurance Research Council, nearly 1/3 of all people injured in motor vehicle accidents seek treatment from doctors of chiropractic. This is an impressive number given that the National Safety Council has determined there to be more than 12 million motor vehicle accident’s annually involving more than 20 million vehicles.
The reason individuals like yourself choose chiropractic care for treatment of injuries sustained in motor vehicle accident’s is simple – chiropractic care is exceptional in the treatment of soft tissue injuries, especially of the spine. Since the most common injuries associated with MVA’s are sprains and strains of the spinal muscles and ligaments, it’s only natural that chiropractic be the treatment of choice.
Many studies have also found individuals injured in MVA’s prefer chiropractic care for the treatment of their injuries. One such study evaluated 190 whiplash injury victims and found those who received chiropractic care reported treatment satisfaction of nearly 100%.
