Most Eagle / Meridian /Boise residents can relate to having been involved in a car accident at some point in their lives. Whether it was a major accident or a minor one, accidents are no fun and can cause a variety of minor to serious injuries. The financial implications of an accident, as well as interruption of your daily routine are also other major detriments of car accidents that may take years to recover from.
With more distracted drivers texting and speaking on their phones, car accidents in Boise and Eagle are on the rise, making for much more dangerous roadways. While we cannot control other people’s behaviors, we can certainly drive more cautiously and defensively to hopefully avoid being in a car accident.
Unfortunately, accidents do happen despite our best efforts, so being prepared and having a plan in mind is key to recovering quickly and getting back on our feet again.
More serious car accidents mean more serious injuries, ranging from cuts and bruise to broken bones. Less serious car accidents however, may not seem like a big deal at first, with victims often walking away without a scratch, thinking they have escaped the accident unscathed. Others may only complain of a slight headache or neck pain, resorting to taking over the counter pain killers, or wearing a neck brace to assist with their recovery – something that is far from addressing the true cause of the injury.
What many don’t realize is that a slight headache or neck pain is a sign of a much more serious injury. Spinal misalignments as a result of a sudden jolt may manifest immediately, or not become evident at all for a long period of time. But this doesn’t mean the spine is healthy or that no injury was sustained.
A misaligned spine causes nerve interference – hindrance of critical nerve energy that is responsible for every function of our organs, and every movement of our limbs. Ignoring the slightest spinal misalignment, can manifest into pain and discomfort, fatigue, sleep disorders, organ dysfunction, depression, and eventually disease.
If you have been in a minor or major car accident, please see a corrective care chiropractor immediately for a full assessment of the health of your spine, even if you don’t feel any discomfort whatsoever. A small misalignment can only get worse with time, so addressing this injury quickly can mean a faster recovery time and less health problems in the future.
