You’re sitting at a stoplight, minding your own business and WHAM! you’re hit from behind by another vehicle. Or, maybe you’re cruising down the road, daydreaming about living off the grid in Alaska, or your next Pumpkin Spice Latte and WHAM! you’ve hit another vehicle.
Either way, your body takes a beating, even in low speed accidents. Your head and shoulders get thrown around, your low back and hips get shoved into positions they have no business being in and your spine gets treated like a slinky.
Do you know the worst part of trauma like this? If it’s not corrected in your body, it becomes normal. Your body gets traumatically put into bad positions and bad ways of moving and over time, if not corrected, your body says “Ok, I guess this is how it’s supposed to be” and it adapts to the trauma.
The best solution? A time travel machine so that you can avoid the accident. The next best solution? Make an appointment with Dr. Thistle so that your injuries can be assessed and treated right away, to get you back to 100% as soon as possible. The best part? Just about everything can be done in-house, including:
- Digital X-ray referral, if indicated
- Graston Therapy
- Rehabilitation + Exercise
