Most people find that they’re lucky and don’t have any major medical issues for much of their life, until they get older. I thought I was one of those people until someone hit my car with their car. Up to that point, I had been relatively pain free in life, and it was nice. But after it happened, I found myself suffering from pain on a daily basis. Frustrated with pain kills not working, I was directed by a family member to find a San Jose auto accident chiropractor to see if that would make a difference. I’m here to say that it is a really good thing that I listened.
I hate to mention that, prior to suffering from back troubles myself, I did not have much sympathy for people who claimed they could not do certain things because they were having back pain. But after dealing with it on a personal basis, I now know that I was wrong to think that way. Saying “My lower back is really hurting” to someone does not really signal how bad things can get. I found that people were dismissing me, just as I dismissed other people. And neither crying or moaning is something that is considered appropriate when you’re sitting in a business meeting with other professionals and find that you simply cannot sit without hurting.
I was going to my usual doctor for many months about the pain that I was feeling my lower back that came about after I was in the vehicle accident. Nothing was working. He mentioned the possibility of surgery to me, and that sounded ludicrous to me! So, seeing a chiropractor was my last resort in my eyes. I had heard about them, but had never been to one before. The one I went to provided me with almost instant relief.
