I was in a car accident about 20 years ago that left me with a permanent limp. I have a lot of pain associated with that, but I just had to deal with it because there was nothing that could be done. At least, that is what I thought. It was not until I was in another accident about two months ago that I realized I had suffered needlessly all those years. I had seen a Peoria chiropractor the day after my accident, and I had put on my paperwork that this was my second car accident.
I gave details of the first accident as well, and I also explained how I had a permanent limp from that. When I was asked about my back pain from the limp, I was surprised the doctor knew that there would be pain. Most people just see a limp and think that it is just pain either in my hip or my leg, but he explained that the imbalanced walking will cause my spine to not be aligned properly. Without having it adjusted by a chiropractor, then the only result would be to have pain on a very regular basis.
I asked him if it was too late to do anything about it, and he told me that it is never too late to get comfort and relief from an injury like that. He did treat me for the whiplash that I had from the second accident, but the focus of both of our attention was on getting me as pain free from the first accident. I never would have thought I would consider that second accident a blessing, but that is what happened. He was able to finally give me what I thought I would never have, and that is to have pain free days.
