A Car Wreck Left Me in Pain

December 1st, 2016

I am the type of person who takes my health seriously. I get regular checkups at my doctor, and I see my dentist every six months for a cleaning. I take vitamins every morning, and I maintain a healthy weight. Doing all of this still did not prevent me from having to find a chiropractor in Sacramento not that long ago though. I was in a car accident, and the pain that I felt afterwards was pretty intense. My doctor offered to give me pain meds for it, but I did not want to go down that road.

I knew that there was a reason that I was hurting as much as I was, and I wanted to figure out the root of it rather than just mask it with some prescription pills. My doctor told me that I should see a chiropractor then, since the cause was likely because I was jarred so badly in the accident. Just because I did not have any broken bones did not mean that I did not suffer some type of internal injury. He even recommended the chiropractor that I see on a regular basis now.

My first appointment was actually a bit painful. I knew that it probably would be, because the chiropractor was going to have to give me a thorough examination. Along with the physical exam, she also ran some imaging tests. It was not long before she knew the root of the problems, and she devised a treatment plan for me. It involved adjustments, ice and heat therapy, exercises such as stretching, and massages. It did not take long at all before I was feeling better, and I am so glad that I did this because it introduced me to a new way of feeling a lot better. The pain is long gone, but I still see her on a regular basis for adjustments.
