Chiropractic Is The Only Proven Effective Whiplash Treatment

A recent study published in the Journal of Orthopaedic Medicine states chiropractic is the "only proven effective treatment" for chronic whiplash. Results from this study found 74 percent of chronic whiplash patients improved with chiropractic treatment. This is a remarkable number given the extreme difficulty in treating chronic whiplash sufferers. According to the authors of the study, "Conventional treatment of patients with whiplash symptoms is disappointing. A retrospective study... demonstrated that chiropractic treatment benefited 26 of 28 patients suffering from chronic whiplash syndrome." This study helps support the superiority of chiropractic in the management of whiplash patients.
