If you slipped down the stairs, were in a car crash, or took a hard hit at a sporting event, that would be cause to see a doctor or chiropractor. Sounds obvious, right? The problem arises when you encounter one of these dangerous situations, and end up coming out of it feeling fine. If there is no obvious pain, it may seem pointless to see a medical professional. But it is possible that something went slightly out of alignment that may compound in intensity over time. Or in a particularly dire circumstance, you may have even sustained nerve damage that is masking your ability to fully process and recognize the pain. It is completely worth getting a professional opinion on the state of your body, to clear up any pain you may be feeling now, or just to ensure that you will not encounter serious pain down the road.
