93% of Whiplash Patients Improve with Chiropractic Care!

This article’s introduction sums up the state of whiplash treatment very well:

“The ‘whiplash’ syndrome is a collection of symptoms produced as a result of soft-tissue injury of the cervical spine. The accumulated literature suggests that 43 percent of patients will suffer long-term symptoms following ‘whiplash’ injury. If patients are still symptomatic after three months then there is almost a 90 per cent chance that they will remain so. No conventional (MEDICAL) treatment has proven to be effective in these established chronic cases.”

The authors of this study examined the effectiveness of CHIROPRACTIC in 28 patients with chronic whiplash pain. The patients were referred to the doctor of chiropractic an average of 15.5 (range, 3-44) months after the accident and were interviewed before treatment by both an independent chiropractic and orthopedic physician. The patients were assigned to one of four classification groups:

A – No symptoms;
B – Symptoms are a nuisance;
C – Symptoms are intrusive; and,
D – Symptoms are disabling.

The initial evaluation placed 27 of the 28 patients in groups C or D.

“Following (CHIROPRACTIC) treatment, 26 out of 28 (93 per cent) of the patients had improved: 16 by one symptom group and 10 by two symptom groups.  In the group that had improved, 17 had stopped their treatment at the time of assessment; symptoms had recurred to a minor degree in four (24 per cent) of these patients and they were considering further treatment.”
The authors conclude that these are exciting findings, and that they merit further investigations with randomized, controlled studies.

Chiropractic Care is the Only Proven, Effective Treatment for Chronic Whiplash

Over the last ten years, a great deal has been written on the problem of whiplash biomechanics, but little study has been done on treatment of whiplash injuries. As the authors of a new study write, “Conventional treatment of patients with whiplash symptoms is disappointing.” 1

 “Woodward et al2 found improvement in chronic symptoms in 26 of 28 patients (93%) following chiropractic treatment. Our results confirm the efficacy of chiropractic, with 69 of our 93 patients (74%) improving following treatment.
“Our study suggests that such a group of non-responders does exist, represented by group 3. The defining characteristics of patients in this group were the full range of neck movement in association with neck pain, bizarre symptoms, female sex and ongoing litigation. The mean age of the group at 29.5 (16-43) was lower than that of the other two groups (mean 36.8, range 18-65).
The results from this study provide further evidence that chiropractic is an effective treatment for chronic whiplash symptoms.”

The authors conclude:

“Whiplash injuries are common. Chiropractic is the only proven effective treatment in chronic cases.”
