This week, we really wanted to focus on car accidents. While it isn’t a happy subject to dwell on, it is certainly one that is close to many of us. Whether you have been severely hurt in a car crash, or someone you know and love has, we are all touched by this topic in one way or another. Even I have been. In fact, many of you probably have multiple stories of how car accidents have changed your life or the lives of those around you. I know I do.
My grandmother was partially paralyzed due to a car accident in the 1970’s. When the crash occurred, a drunk driver had drifted into her lane and caused a head on collision with her, my grandfather, and my mother all in the car. As a direct result of this she had died twice on her way to the hospital and spent many months recovering before she was released to go home. Her right arm was permanently paralyzed and so she had to relearn to do everything with her left hand. Unfortunately, this story is not one that is uncommon to many of us. Although safety features in cars have improved immensely since that time, there is still always the possibility that something hits a car just right or a safety feature fails and someone ends up severely injured or killed.
While we here at Wirth hope that none of you can relate to this story, we also know that it is foolish of us to believe that to be true. Many of us have lost loved ones to car accidents or have had those we know and care for permanently injured. Whether it was done through someone else’s negligence or due to something beyond anyone’s control, the fact of the matter is that car accidents change people’s lives.
If you or a loved one has been in a car accident and still experiences pain due to this event, we want to see you. We have treated people who have been in accidents for years and know that there is a high probability that we can help you as well. If you are still in pain, we want to change that. No one should have to live with pain for any reason. Come on into Wirth Chiropractic and see what we can do to help you.
