My Daughter Was One of the Lucky Ones

My daughter wanted to go to the local football game with some friends. I didn’t have a problem with this because I knew the girl she was going with, and I trust her 100 percent. I was not even thinking about other kids though and how irresponsible they can be. While my daughter and her friends were behaving and doing everything right, a group of boys were the complete opposite. The end result was a car accident, and my daughter ended up having to see a car accident chiropractor in Chandler because of her injuries.

Granted, she got off easy compared to some of the others. Two of the boys in the other car nearly lost their lives, and my daughter’s friend who was driving ended up needing several surgeries for internal injuries. While I was thankful my daughter was not as bad off as them, I still hated seeing her in so much pain. That is why I wanted to get her to a chiropractor as soon as possible. I considered ourselves fortunate when the one I wanted her to see was able to take her the day after the accident because of the severity of the accident.

The chiropractor was very gentle with the examination, which my daughter truly appreciated. She later told me that every bit of her body was hurting, or at least it felt like it. After the chiropractor took some imaging tests, he was able to develop a treatment plan for her. She thought she would enjoy the massage aspect of it, but even that hurt her. There are times when pain is good though, because it means the body is healing itself. It did not take her long before she started feeling better. I think what helped her with her pain mostly, other than the treatments, was knowing how lucky she was compared to some of the others.
