After an auto accident, most people are worried about their car and totally forget about their other vehicle – their body! You may have obvious pains and symptoms like muscle stiffness or spasm, neck pain, headaches, numbness and tingling, back pain, difficulty sleeping, irritability, memory loss, fatigue, difficulty concentrating and many other difficulties. Or worse than that, you may be injured and feel nothing at all.
Some auto accident injuries are hidden and may not be detected for months or even years. Even if you are just sore, you should get checked out immediately because you may experience pain, numbness, headaches, muscle stiffness, fatigue, and other problems including arthritis many months down the road.
Over the last several years a good deal of research has shown that injuries can and do occur in low impact collisions. Whiplash can occur in sudden changes of speed of only 2.5 miles per hour, with minor back injuries also occurring. While auto bumpers are made to withstand damage at five miles per hour, the human body does not withstand damage at this or any other speed. When a vehicle doesn’t absorb the force of the crash, the occupant of the vehicle does.
This can result in a wide variety of problems and most doctors are not trained to detect many of the subtle, but ultimately debilitating injuries that can occur in an auto accident. Chiropractors are trained in the bio-mechanics of the human body and treat these injuries every day.
