Whiplash and trapezius contracture

My story goes back 15 years. As a result of a car accident I was diagnosed with whiplash and a trapezius contracture. It seems to be a very common injury in these types of accidents. For me it became a real ordeal, which was accompanied by a long pilgrimage to a long list of doctors and an inhuman amount of tests. The result was always the same: whiplash and trapezius contracture do not justify so much pain.
When you hear this over and over again there comes a time when you think that maybe it’s your fault and that what’s happening is that you pay too much attention to that pain. That thought lasts a second, because you immediately realize that it is not you, but that the pain in the muscle fibers is there. even after being on medication for months and months, even after doing rehabilitation for years and years. It means waking up in the morning with a headache, continuing throughout the day with neck muscle pain, and going to sleep with pain in the cervical spine.

What was the solution to the pain caused by whiplash and trapezius contracture?

I visited several rehabilitation centers to relieve the pain caused by whiplash, I went to a physical therapist for many years. I went to an osteopath, tried acupuncture. I have tried so many things…
At 40 years old she was desperate and exhausted physically and mentally. I had always been a happy and very outgoing person, even the first years of neck muscle pain. But for two or three years, he no longer even had the desire to smile.
When my friend María told me about the Chiropractic Center I didn’t think twice. In fact, I had nothing to think about, I just had to try something else and add it to my big list.

My encounter with Chiropractic

So the next day I called and they visited me right away. Now comes that moment, when I don’t know how to express how I feel, after almost a year of adjustments. My life took a radical change from almost the first moment.  
It is true that in the third month, I had a small pain crisis, but even at that moment my chiropractor asked me with the certainty that he has to trust him, and not leave him. He told me that the crisis was normal, but that he was sure that it was temporary too. That’s how it was… I trusted him, and today, almost a year later, I can say that my life has changed. I have my smiling face again, and enjoy the little things in life: walking, going out to dinner, lying on the couch without muscle contractures to watch a movie or read, enjoying my family and friends…

The pills are gone!

I have not taken a single pill again. And since the beginning of the year I have not had a single neck pain. Nothing reminds me of the accident anymore, not even the whiplash and trapezius contracture.
So I only have one question left, is my chiropractor aware of the good he does? In case he has any doubts, here I leave my testimony and my eternal gratitude.
