Auto Accident Pain and Injuries
Following a car accident there are many things that you may be dealing with. Common problems after a car accident include whiplash, back pain, emotional distress and headaches. It can take people days to show symptoms after an auto accident. Even people who begin to show symptoms may not recognize the symptoms as a larger injury. As a result, many people who experience auto injuries fail to seek medical treatment when the car accident first occurs. This delayed response can lead to prolonged pain and suffering. The sooner you seek treatment after a car accident with a chiropractor, the better. Whiplash is a common condition that affects two million Americans each year and is often associated with auto accidents. Often patients who experience whiplash are people who have been in car accidents and even very minor car accidents can cause symptoms of whiplash.
Whiplash: What It Is and What It Does
Whiplash is caused by the sudden jerky movement that occurs when the car impacts a large stationary object. When this happens, the joints in the body stretch in ways that are painful and detrimental.
