Did you know that car accidents of less than 5 miles per hour can cause problems years later…
Take Action After An Accident
You’ve just been involved in an auto accident and the only real damage appears to be your car. You were wearing your seatbelt, after all…NOT SO FAST!
Did you know that it often takes weeks, months, even years for the full effects of even a low-speed (less than 5 miles per hour) collision to manifest itself in your body? While the damage to your care may easily be fixed, the damage to your body may not be.
It’s advisable to go to the emergency room following an accident to be checked for broken bones, internal bleeding and organ damage. But soft tissue injuries, which affect muscles, ligaments and tendons, won’t show up on an x-ray. And the pain associated with “whiplash”, a soft tissue injury in the neck that usually occurs as the results of a rear-end collision, can last for years.
We can confirm that many patients who complain of headaches, neck pain, muscle spasms and dizziness can trace the start of their symptoms back to a car accident that may have happened years before. It’s always a smart idea to see us for a complete check up following any motor vehicle accident, just to be on the safe side.
So, please don’t wait!
