Beware: Blue Angels Seafair Traffic May Cause Bellevue Accidents

Bummer: Driving from Bellevue to Seattle yesterday during the I-90 bridge closure for the Blue Angels traffic.  Not only did it take three times the amount of time to get to my community  service health talk with a local rowing camp, I drove by a big accident I know was caused by the awesome jets that buzzed over I-405 moments before.  Who knows, maybe they were texting, maybe it was just an accident, or more likely, they took their eyes off the already stop and go traffic to catch a glimpse of the practice air show.

Car Accident Waiting to Happen

Yes, Bellevue traffic plus Seafair equals car accidents waiting to happen.

What to do?  Keep your eyes on the prize (where you are going!) not on the tight flying acrobatic show above.  Now, if you or someone you know do get in an accident, please take care of your spine the same way you will take care of your car: By getting a well spine check-up as soon as possible after the collision.  Make sure your structure and function are not impaired by the collision.

Where is a great place to get checked out after an unexpected car accident?  Cummins Chiropractic of course.  Dr. Cummins does this all the time.  Sometimes, people do not have any problems after an accident and sometimes they have major complications from the impact.  You need to get checked out to know for sure.  Pain is not the only indicator here folks.  Dr. Cummins is very good at listening and explaining the results of his spine exam.  He can provide our patients in and our of our office with connections to the services they need to get back to health.  Be sure you are getting the care you need to live 60, 70, 80 years and beyond with your one awesome body you have to live in!
