A Car Wreck Can Be Painful

I was really thankful that the accident I was involved in was not worse. I heard quite a few people who had witnessed it exclaim that they were surprised that no one had been killed in it. Once I saw the pictures of the vehicles involved later, I could understand why they felt that way. I did not really remember a whole lot about the accident, and I was taken to the hospital as soon as I was extricated. I stayed overnight for observation, and it was suggested that I look into Sacramento chiropractors because of the back pain that I told them about.

The nurse that discharged me told me that it would be a good idea to see one even if I did not have back pain because car accidents can deceive a person. Sometimes they may think that they are okay because a person is not hurting all that much, but it hits them days or even weeks later. I did not want that to happen to me, especially since I was already hurting not even a full day after the accident. I had never been to a chiropractor before, and she was happy to recommend the one that her entire family visits on a regular basis.

I was surprised at that because she is so young, and she explained that she is into preventative actions. Having regular adjustments now means a healthier body down the road. I was convinced, and I was happy too when I found out that I could get in there that same day. To make a long story short, I did have whiplash plus my lower back issues, and I was more than happy with the treatment plan that I was given. I did not have any significant pain because I was getting the right treatment almost immediately after the accident. That was nearly a year ago but I still go in for my regular adjustments now because of that talk with the nurse who took care of me after the wreck. I want to prevent as much as I can too!
