Hidden Injuries CAN Financially And Physically Hurt You!
After any accident, in my opinion, it’s advisable to visit the emergency room to make sure you don’t suffer from any life-threatening injuries like broken bones, a punctured lung, or internal bleeding.
But the problem is that as long as there’s no immediate threat to your life, the emergency room physician is likely to send you along on your way with pain medication to mask the pain.
And here’s the problem with only taking pain medication after your accident…
Soft tissues like muscles, ligaments, discs, nerves and blood vessels need oxygen. They also need to function and move properly.
When you only take pain relief medication and/or anti-inflammatory medication, scar tissue and adhesions can form-limiting the proper motion needed for healthy nerve and blood flow.
Scar tissue is also a substandard tissue that can turn into its own source of pain – causing a number of chronic pains, symptoms and syndromes!
The Problem Is That Soft Tissue Injuries
Are NOT Always Visible On X-Rays
That’s why most doctors don’t have the training to detect soft tissue injuries…they over-rely on vital signs, x-rays, and the pain described by the patient!
Since many doctors can’t detect your injury, they make the wrong diagnosis about what’s wrong with you. So any treatments you get based on this diagnosis will do practically nothing for you!
The treatment of choice for medical doctors, like your family doctor, is to use drugs to cover up your symptoms (in your case, the biggest symptom is pain) so you don’t feel injured anymore. This form of treatment only gives you the illusion that you’re okay, when really you can be seriously injured and not know it.
So, If You Are Experiencing Any Of These Symptoms, You May Be Suffering From A Soft Tissue Injury
