Rhetorical question: How do we learn to make good decisions in our lives?
Answer: By making bad decisions and learning a lesson.
I am treating a patient who had an automobile accident. Not a bad one, but he could tell something was different. The patient came in to have me check it out. We have worked on him five or six times. He’s doing much, much better – 95 to 98% improvement, so we’re almost done.
The better story here….
He went to see his family MD for another concern. During his visit, he was telling the nurse that he had been in to see us for his injury. She said, “that was the right thing to do.” She continued to tell him that she had an accident 10 years ago, and she was never treated because the symptoms weren’t severe. Now she has a stiff neck every single day. She regrets not seeing a chiropractor after her accident.
If you are reading this, I recommend that you get in here as soon as possible. I can still do some good work for you even though your injury was 10 years ago. Thank you for encouraging my patient by letting him know that he made a good choice to get treatment after his accident.
I treat a lot of nurses. They see me, or sometimes, they experience all the consequences of not getting an injury properly treated, even if it is a minor injury.
If you have upset the alignment and movement patterns of a joint in your body, it will cause you problems in the future. There are very few certainties in the world of healthcare, but I can promise you a misaligned joint with an abnormal pattern of movement is going to breakdown, degenerate, and eventually, cause trouble.
Get it fixed ASAP. It’s better for you, and it makes my job easier.
