Whiplash Helped With Chiropractic
An article published in the Journal of Orthopedic Medicine in 1999 stated the superiority of chiropractic care for patients suffering from long term whiplash. The authors of the article noted that the previous study had shown that 26 of 28 patients, or 93 percent, of patients with chronic whiplash benefited from chiropractic care. In the authors own study, they interviewed 100 consecutive chiropractic referrals of patients with chronic whiplash. Their results also showed that of the 93 patients who remained within the study, 69 of them, or 74 percent, found improvement. They concluded their opening comments using the statement, "The results from this study provide further evidence that chiropractic is an effective treatment for chronic whiplash symptoms."
