I knew that I was hurt pretty bad when I couldn’t even open the car door and get out. I had been hit by a truck, but that impact sent my car out into the middle of the road where it was hit by two other cars. Unbelievably, once they cut my door off, I was able to step out on my own. I thought for sure I was going to have to be lifted out because of how much I was hurting. I knew that a San Jose chiropractor was definitely in my future, but first I had to find out the severity of my injuries.
I sustained a few broken bones, a concussion, and a whole lot of pain. They were able to set the bones rather quickly at the hospital. I had several imaging tests done to ensure there were no internal injuries that would require surgery. I did stay one night because of the concussion because the doctor wanted me to be observed. Since I live alone, that would have been impossible otherwise. I was given the all clear though the next morning, and I was advised to follow up with my regular doctor.
Since I don’t have a regular doctor, I had to make a decision. I could either become established with one, or I could bypass that route altogether and see a chiropractor. I decided to go that way since I knew I would end up getting referred to one anyway because of my back pain. It was easy to find one not too far from me, and he has really helped me not only recover from the accident but even more. I feel better now than I have in a very long time, and I know it is because of all the care that I receive from my chiropractor.
