Car Accident in Greenville
A car accident in Greenville is traumatic whether you were at fault or a victim of another’s negligence. Many times, your freedom to get to school or work has been lost and for many of us, those that depend on us, are left without transportation, too. With any luck, we find a new car and continue driving on Greenville’s roads to school, work, and back and ignore the pain. In time, the pain goes away. Then, with a slight turn of the head, it suddenly returns and the pain cycle begins.
Now, every time we turn our head to look out of the car window, our entire body must turn. Each time we rake leaves or play with the kids, we must rest. Work becomes our only activity and our life becomes limited by pain. Then, the pain subsides again, only to come back again in a few months. Years pass and the pain has come and gone a number of times until one day the pain never goes away.
How Did the Pain Cycle Begin?
You were in an accident -A trauma.
The body’s response to a traumatic injury is to lock up to allow you to get away from the problem--to move away from the scene of the accident in Greenville and go on with your life or at least your day. Over time, waste products collect in the tissues without a properly functioning mechanism to remove them. Remember, the joints are locked and the body needs them to move in order to effectively remove waste products. Irritants collect in the tissues and movement is further limited. Long-term, this same mechanism leads to degenerative changes and pain. Joints that don’t move, become even more stiff. The body lays down extra calcium and arthritis begins. Eventually, the bones fuse together and not move at all.
After an injury, chiropractic care in Greenville can keep the joints moving and help the discs remain healthy. Over time, moving joints allow the tissues to be nourished and heal avoiding the endless cycle of pain.
