An auto accident injury can be a difficult issue for a couple of reasons. For one thing, your injury can make life difficult from pain or stiffness. Even worse, some injuries don't show symptoms for 24-48 hours or more. That's why we advise anyone who's been in a wreck to see a chiropractor ASAP.
3 Most Common Auto Accident Injuries
Whiplash -Whiplash is the number one most common auto accident injury. It can occur even at collision speeds of less than 15 miles per hour! It is also an injury where it is common that a patient will not notice symptoms immediately.
Head Injury -Concussions and other head trauma are very common in automobile accidents. In addition, stiffness in the neck and shoulders can cause headaches.
Spinal Injury Could be just misaligned, could be a ruptured, inflamed, or herniated disk. You could end up with more than just whiplash in your neck. You may need a spinal adjustment.
Are You Suffering an Unknown Auto Accident Injury?
Auto accident injuries can take time to reveal their symptoms. Whiplash can take 24-48 hours. More importantly, so can other conditions. Take head injuries, for example. Headaches are naturally a common symptom of head injuries. But they often won't show up for many days, so that you may not even associate a headache with your wreck. And even if you do, there is no way to know without professional help if your the pain in your head comes from tightened neck and shoulder muscles or form a concussion.
Since a concussion is far more serious, you need to get to a chiropractor and let him look your shit over. A concussion could cause harm to you days after the incident, so it's important to know!
