Timing is critical: don’t delay!
Auto accidents can be traumatic physically and emotionally, which is why here at Impact Injury Center we get you out of pain and back to your normal life sooner rather than later. Even if there is minimal damage to your car, or you have minimal or delayed symptoms, it is extremely important to have a qualified physician examine you after a motor vehicle accident. The doctors at Impact Injury Center have extensive post-graduate education in Whiplash and Brain Injury Traumatology through the world-renowned Spine Research Institute of San Diego.
Why am I in pain?
Some people experience pain/whiplash symptoms right away while others start experiencing pain the day after or two days after the auto collision. This is similar to when you go to the gym and exercise for the first time in months, but don’t experience the intense soreness until one or two days later. In the gym it is called DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness); in an auto collision, it is due to the injured tissues going through the inflammatory phase of the remodeling process. Essentially, your brain and body are still trying to process the pain and upstart your recovery cascade.
It is very common for individuals to be injured in seemingly minor auto accidents, and these injuries can have significant long-term effects if not treated with a timely, thorough approach. In fact, European and American studies show that in collisions under 10 miles per hour 36% of people reported cervical (neck) injuries and headaches, and 33% reported lower back and extremity (arm and/or leg) pain.
Most people have a lot of questions about injuries sustained after an auto accident. Studies show that rear-end auto crashes account for 25% of all collisions, but account for 38% of all motor vehicle collision (MVC) injuries. Each year there are roughly 3,000,000 auto accidents in the United States and about 12% (360,000 people) report suffering from long-term, chronic pain after the crash.
