I was involved in a car accident not that long ago. We were all very fortunate to have walked away from it as all three cars involved were totaled. The police were there, and ambulance personnel were as well. We were all advised to go to the hospital to be checked out, but none of us did. We all felt fine, mainly because we were wearing our seat belts. It was not until about a week later that I knew I needed to see a Round Rock chiropractor because of increasing pain in my upper back and neck area.
I figured that it was because of the accident, but I was not sure why it was getting worse each day instead of feeling better. I had done some research on back and neck injuries with car accidents, and I saw where that is extremely common. Some people may not even feel the discomfort for days. I felt mine the first day, but figured that I was just going to feel sore because of the accident. I had no idea that it was going to get worse instead of better though.
I was able to get into a chiropractor’s office not far from where I live. When I called and explained why I wanted to come in, they had me come in that same day. It was explained to me that just because I am not feeling intense pain did not mean that something bad did not happen inside. I had some X-rays taken, and the physical exam along with the imagining results showed the chiropractor all he needed to know. The pain was from the accident, and he started me on a treatment plan that day. I have regular adjustments, a deep tissue massage once a week, and exercises I do every day at home. I am feeling much better already, and it’s only been a few weeks!
