Living With Pain

Austin Jergenson View All

Too often people live their lives in discomfort or pain without discovering effective methods of recovery. Minor accidents can result in a lifetime of problems if left alone. These problems can begin as a childhood fall or an accident you thought was minor which resulted in subluxations. Subluxations are known as a partial dislocation in the vertebrae. The spinal cord is a critical part of our body and brains function, if it is out of alignment all systems can be affected. 

What causes injury in an accident?

When you are involved in an auto accident your body can bend and move beyond the maximum distance your body typically allows. This results in misalignment in the neck or vertebrae causing discomfort and pain. Often times an individual will go to a medical doctor and the medical doctors will say they are let them know they are OK since there are no broken bones or serious bleeding. Unfortunately medical doctors do not always know how to analyze the body for subluxations or how to correct them.

Never “just live with it”.

Often times when people begin to live life in pain or in discomfort they say to themselves “you’ll have to live with it” or “this is just how it is” and it is an unfortunate fact that over half of the victims from auto accidents never fully recover. Accident victims often continue to suffer from pain, weakness and disability for years or even decades following the trauma. Victims often rely on heavy pain killers or muscle relaxants and wind up feeling stuck to a medicine cabinet for the rest of their lives. The answer to recovery that is so commonly missed is chiropractic care. Chiropractic care can completely eliminate or greatly reduce the pain a person goes through or lives with on a regular basis.

What is chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a system of healthcare that specializes in locating and correcting subluxations. Body exams and x-rays are used to locate subluxations that can be hidden. Your chiropractor corrects subluxations using safe and gentle adjustment techniques. At CLEAR Chiropractic Dr. Clum utilizes both the full body chiropractic system and the upper cervical specific Blair technique as needed.

What should I do?

If you’ve spent part or all of your life in pain or discomfort you should see a chiropractor. Often times doctors will recommend getting on pain killers when chiropractic care can avoid them. By visiting a chiropractor you can have your structural system checked for nerve pressure caused by subluxations. By correcting these subluxations not only can it improve your pain and discomfort, it can change the way your body communicates with the brain and improve coordination and even emotions.
