The answer would seem obvious – who would want their pain to continue? After a car accident, people often seek relief in medications, or believe that rest will help to relieve pain. So they let the pain continue for days or weeks. Even months. Do they want to remain in pain? No. But they don’t understand that help could be a phone call – and a chiropractor’s visit – away.
