Car Accident Injury
It may not seem like it, but a car accident is one of the most stressful things you can experience. Mentally, physically, emotionally (not to mention the car itself), a car accident takes a massive toll on the body. That, and dealing with insurance companies places even more stress on an already overextended body.
Let us help you get your body back to form, while also providing guidance on how best to navigate the aftermath of your accident. It doesn’t have to be complicated when you have experienced professionals by your side!
Whiplash, Neck Pain, and Headaches/Migraines
When most people think of injury from a car accident, they think of whiplash. Whiplash isn’t just limited to neck pain though, it can also include headaches and migraines. When the head is suddenly and unexpectedly thrown in an unnatural way with tremendous force, damage happens. Ligaments, muscles, and neck tissue all take a beating.
The worst part of whiplash is damage may not be apparent right away. It may take days or weeks for symptoms to manifest, and in that time, the damage could have gotten much worse. Worse meaning potentially permanent damage to the neck and spine.
Back Injury & Sciatica
Whiplash isn’t the only major side effect of a car accident: oftentimes, you may experience sprains in the back muscles, ligaments, and other tissue. You may also suffer a ruptured or herniated disc and increased pressure on spinal nerves. Because these nerves spread through your body, you may also feel pain in the legs, buttocks, and other areas. Again, because symptoms take time to manifest, without seeking treatment right away, you could allow the damage to get much worse.
