Even if you’re in minor auto collision, your concerns shouldn’t end with a final interview with the police before leaving the scene of the accident.
Your car may not show any signs of damage in crashes up to 12 miles per hour, but it’s very possible for your body to sustain an injury at this speed. In fact, more than half of all whiplash injuries happen in instances where there is no damage to the vehicle.
It’s possible that you may not feel injured after a minor crash, but you should make an appointment no charge consultation to determine if soft tissue damage has occured.
conditions that commonly related to accidents are neck pain, back pain, headaches, joint pain, jaw pain, ringing in the ears, eye strain/focus problems, arm or leg numbness or weakness.
We have seen many patients who had an accident 5-10 years ago that thought they had no injuries, but now have neck and back problems due to disc injury, disc scarring or nerve root compression. Car accidents are also commonly a factor of early spine arthritis from poorly moving and functioning spinal joints.
