How we can help after an accident, even if you do not think you are injured
Even car crashes at extremely low speeds can cause a serious amount of damage to your body. Studies show that many injuries take place in accidents under 20 miles per hour. Imagine what could happen if you are involved in a car crash at a high speed! Many that are involved in a car accident think that they are fine because they don’t experience any initial pain. Remember, just because you are not experiencing any pain does not mean that you are not hurt! This is a common misconception made by many; but almost all car crashes jolt the body to some degree. Many experience shock since their bodies are in fight-or-flight mode, which blocks the pain from being felt. Some people experience pain the next day, while it can take weeks or months for some to experience their injuries.
It is important to schedule an appointment as soon as possible after your accident. You will be evaluated for soft tissue as well as any other types of injuries. We may take X-rays or refer you for other testing such as a CT scan or MRI. (on the word “refer” hyper link to our “referrals” page)
