After a much needed trip to a Chandler car accident chiropractor, I’m feeling a lot better. The reason that I needed the chiropractor is because I was in a terrible accident that I shouldn’t have survived. I was driving home from work like I normally do in the evening when my car was stuck by a drunk driver. The driver had come from a local bar and had one too many drinks. My car was totalled, but I miraculously survived with only a painful back injury. The other driver was rushed to the hospital and placed in critical condition, but now he is stable and recovering.
The moment the other car hit my car was one of the scariest moments of my life. The car came out of nowhere, and I was too shocked to react in time. If the other driver had been going a little bit faster, or maybe struck my car from a different angle, then both of us might have died in the crash. The accident really made me think about the things I’ve never been able to do in my life, and all of the people that I would leave behind if something happened to me.
The chiropractor gave me a back brace to use while my back went through the healing process. Given how bad the accident was, I thought surgery might have been necessary, but thankfully I don’t need it. As for the driver, he has multiple broken bones that need to heal and months of physical therapy. I haven’t gone to see him in the hospital since the accident, and I wouldn’t know what to say to him if I did. I know he didn’t intentionally set out to cause an accident, but what he did was irresponsible and nearly cost both of us our lives.
