I saw pictures of her car. It was a very bad accident with the front half of her car being completely demolished. She was very lucky to have walked away from the scene. Thank goodness for seat belts and airbags, huh?
We began treatments the day following her accident and twice weekly since (she's following a similar schedule with her chiropractor). She wasn't sore the day after her accident, which is pretty normal - most people don't start experiencing pain for about a week after their accidents! But here's the more surprising part. Other than some back stiffness when she first wakes up in the morning, she's pain-free. Because she sought help early on from her acupuncturist and chiropractor, she is not suffering from the usual injuries that follow car accidents.
If you're in a car accident, consider seeking alternative medical care. There's so much that can be done to prevent the whiplash and back pain from setting in. If you're unable to see someone in time to prevent these injuries, there is still so much that can be done to speed the recovery process.
