Accidents and trauma
If you have been in an accident or suffered a trauma, you need to have your spine checked by a Chiropractor for subluxations. During the accident, any subluxations that were created in your spine often remain in your body and prevent you from healing properly. That may be the reason why over half of accident victims never completely recover from their injuries and may live on painkillers, physical therapy or even repeated surgery for years. Sometimes they are told that they will have to live in pain for the rest of their lives!
Since nearly any physical force radiates to the skeletal system and can cause spinal subluxations, a chiropractic spinal check-up is essential after an accident. Chiropractic care may make the difference between true recovery, healing and strength, or lingering pain, sickness and disability.
It must be emphasized that chiropractic never opposes necessary medical care. In emergencies, the first order of business is always controlling life threatening situations such as haemorrhage, cessation of breath, broken bones, serious contusions or abrasions, shock and the like. That is the specialty of emergency medicine.
However, many additional lives would undoubtedly be saved if a Doctor of Chiropractic also attended to the accident victim. Unfortunately, today, millions of accident victims leave the hospital with as much spinal nerve stress as they had when they entered. That is a big reason why so many people say, “I haven’t felt right since the accident”, and why they may continue to suffer for months, years or even decades afterwards.
Even if there are no obvious symptoms, anyone who has been in an accident needs to have a chiropractic check-up. The damage from spinal subluxations may take months or years to surface and a simple spinal check-up today could save an accident victim from pain and illness later.
