That’s why it’s so important to choose a provider who understands the treatment required and has the experience to get you “back in the game” as quickly as possible.
But it goes beyond that. Studies show that although pain may subside from spinal injury sustained in your automobile accident, the process of degeneration is just beginning due to the changes in your posture.
For example, it is common to lose the normal curve of the neck when it is injured. Some treatments focus on symptoms only, and if the pain goes away, you are told everything is back to normal.
The truth is, due to the change in normal alignment, the pain will be back several months down the road. And worse, the spine will begin to degenerate. That means that with time, the cartilage between the vertebra called “discs” will begin to shrink, and boney deposits called “bone spurs” begin to grow. These changes lead to a loss of necessary space for the spinal nerves, and soon the pressure and irritation will begin to produce pain, numbness, tingling, and even dysfunction like muscle weakness or organ malfunction. Degenerative changes become a chronic reminder of your prior accident.
Of course, because your symptoms returned after your settlement, you no longer have the insurance company to help pay the bills. Short-sightedness at the time you seek treatment for your injuries invites a lifetime of pain and possibly, disability.
That is why Dr. Lee is a hard-core Chiropractic BioPhysics doctor! He knows that this is your BEST chance to heal properly, and avoid a lifetime of symptoms. The goal isn’t just to get rid of the symptoms, it’s to make sure you healed properly, and that the normal alignment of your spine is restored. It’s the reason it’s called “Corrective Care”. That way, you avoid the misery of returning symptoms, additional doctors’ visits, and the suffering we often see in these cases.
So, let’s do it right the first time. The injuries sustained in an auto accident have been well studied and the effects as well as the treatments are published. Taking a corrective approach rather than a symptom-based approach is not only more scientific, it’s more effective. Chiropractic Biophysics Non-profit has published more than 150 peer-reviewed journal articles on treatment and correction of spinal/postural problems.
You deserve to get better… but more importantly you deserve to heal properly! Call now for an evaluation, and let’s get you started on the path to good health again!
