Conditions

Let’s face it, there’s no good time for an accident!

Pain after an accident can occur instantly or even take weeks to reveal itself.  Timely treatment following any injury is paramount to regaining your health and returning to your pre-injury status.

The lack of treatment, poor or improper treatment may mean that it will take longer to correct, be more difficult to treat, cost more money and ultimately cause you to suffer longer.

Of the millions of people who visit doctors each year, a large number have had whiplash or car accident injuries.

Whiplash is caused by a sudden accelerated and immediate decelerated movement of the head, either backward, forward, or sideways, that results in the damage to the supporting muscles, ligaments and other connective tissues in the neck and upper back.

If you have been involved in a car accident, whiplash injuries need to be taken very seriously.  Because symptoms of a whiplash injury can take weeks or even months to manifest, it’is easy to think that you are not as injured as you really are.

Don’t wait to get proper care.  Too often people don’t seek treatment following a car accident because they don’t feel hurt.

Unfortunately, by the time more serious complications develop, some of the damage from the injury may have become permanent.  Numerous studies have shown that years after whiplash victims settle their insurance claims, roughly half of them state that they still suffer with symptoms from their injuries.  If you have been in a motor vehicle or any other kind of accident, don’t assume that you escaped injury if you are not currently in pain.
