Anyone who has been in an accident, even if there are no obvious symptoms, should get a chiropractic checkup. The damage from spinal subluxations may take months or years to surface and a simple spinal checkup today could save an accident victim from much pain and illness later in life.
Any subluxations created in your spine during the accident 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.
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 hemorrhage, cessation of breath, broken bones, serious contusions or abrasions, shock and the like. That is the specialty of emergency medicine.
