According to studies performed by the Insurance Research Council, almost 1/3 of all individuals injured in motor vehicle accidents (MVA's) receive treatment from doctors of chiropractic. This is an incredible number based on the fact that the National Safety Council (NSC) has determined that there is more than 12 million MVA's each year involving more than 20 million vehicles.
The reason people like yourself choose doctors of chiropractic for treatment of injuries sustained in MVA's is very simple - chiropractic care has been proven in multiple research studies to be effective treatment of soft tissue injuries, especially of the spine. The most common injuries by far associated with MVA's are sprains and strains of the spinal muscles and ligaments commonly known as whiplash. Therefore, it is only natural that chiropractic be the treatment of choice.
Multiple studies have found that individuals injured in MVA's overwhelmingly prefer chiropractic care for the treatment of their injuries. One study, referenced below, evaluated 190 whiplash injury victims and found those who received chiropractic care for their injuries reported a treatment satisfaction level of 100%.
