I Wanted Something Better for My Young Daughter

When I got into a car accident, I immediately thought of my child in the backseat. She is only 5 years old. I was petrified to think that maybe she had been hurt badly. I didn’t realize that I was hurt the most. And then, after I woke up in the hospital, I learned that she had been hurt, too. Not wanting her to be stuck on prescription pain meds for years, I took her to a Chandler auto accident chiropractor to get some pain relief. It was so nice to see that it worked for her and me as well.

I don’t remember all that much about the accident. I just saw someone coming at me with their truck and I panicked. I felt fear at first, and then I remember wanting to turn to look at my child to make sure that she was okay. But I didn’t have time to do that. I needed to steer the car as properly as I could. I think that if I had not done that, the accident would have been even worse than it was. I remember wanting to look at her and call out to her. And that is the last time that I remember beyond hearing her cry out.

When I woke up in the hospital, I was in some much pain. But the first thing that I asked about was the welfare of my daughter. I feared the worst. My husband said that she was fine and at home, but that she had spent three days in the hospital herself. She was in a lot of pain. When I got out, I made sure to take her to a chiropractor so that I could get her off the medications that she was on. I did not feel it to be correct to have a little girl deal with prescriptions.
