Accident Injury That Results in Severe Pain
Most car accidents today even those that are considered minor can result in severe injury and ongoing pain. In fact, many people may not be aware of how severe an automobile crash can actually be. The body usually experiences substantial injury and trauma any time there has been a collision. This is especially true when it comes to neck injuries like whiplash. The neck is particularly vulnerable to impact accidents and can be injured with no immediate symptoms becoming obvious.
Because The Head is Heavy
Whiplash commonly occurs when an individual is sitting in a fixed position in a car that has been rear-ended by another vehicle. This typically happens very fast where there is no time to react. As a result, the head is pushed backward and forward almost instantly. Because the head is heavy it experiences a delayed reaction as the body shifts during impact. These forces, motions and the direction of impact all cause the head to change directions quickly and erratically. This is what causes whiplash in most automobile accidents.
Symptoms Often Take Weeks
The whipping action of an automobile accident impact event can result in serious damage to the neck structure within the human body, a part of the body that is considered one of the most fragile body regions. One concern with whiplash in an automobile accident is that the symptoms often take weeks, months and sometimes even years to appear. Having an immediate chiropractic evaluation is perhaps one of the best ways to get a complete and thorough diagnosis once an automobile accident has occurred.
