Labor Day Weekend Accident
Chiropractic Torrance CA Kids By The Pool

On Saturday while playing pool baseball with my three youngest kids, I slipped while running & diving in the shallow end of the pool, landing on my head and right shoulder.

As soon as I struck the bottom of the pool, I knew I did some serious damage. The pain was a 9/10.

Fortunately for me, it could have been a lot worse like a broken neck or knocked unconscious, so I was thankful it was not more disastrous.

I got out of the pool and immediately headed to the office to treat myself. By the time I got to the office, my head was pounding where I hit it and I could barely move my right shoulder.

I opened a bottle of nucleotides, joint care, and brain health along with healthy energy combined with collagen for nutritional support.

I then went at the scar tissue in the shoulders, neck, back, chest and head with pressure wave, laser, red light and PEMF. I treated myself for a few hours and by the time I was done, my headache was gone & I was able to move my right shoulder again.

However, I did notice that night and the next day my mood and mental disposition was off. I had a hard time focusing and almost felt like I was in a bad mood.

It wasn't until the following day where I did another treatment that I felt my ability to focus and mood starting to return to normal again.

I would say that I am back to about 90%+ recovered but want to continue treatment until I reach 110%.

Here's the takeaway and whole point of me telling you this story:

Whenever you experience a trauma or injury like a pool accident, car accident, sports injury, even a slip or fall that causes pain or some inhibition of movement, the sooner you can properly address that injury, the sooner your recovery will be.

Why? Because a trauma or injury damages the soft tissues (muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, connective tissue, etc.) and scar tissue starts to develop.

If you can treat the newly damaged area, you can not only assist the body in having the scar tissue line up properly, but also work on the surrounding areas that were damaged so that it heals in a fraction of the time it would take if you waited & did nothing.

After 30 years of dealing with trauma and injuries I have seen time and time again that the longer you wait to get treatment, the longer it takes to recover. The less you wait, the faster the recovery.

Most of you practice this principle all the time when you are preserving the longevity of your clothes.

If you're wearing your favorite white shirt and you accidently spill some red wine on it, you immediately take off the shirt and soak it in soap and water while quickly scrubbing to get the stain out.

The sooner you address the stain, the sooner it comes out. The longer you wait, the more difficult it is to get out and if you wait too long, it may never come out and the shirt is ruined.

How much more important is one part of your body than your entire wardrobe which can be replaced in a shopping trip?

Healthy Functioning Body = Higher Quality Living.

Poorly Functioning Body = Lower Quality Living.

What option will you choose?
