If left untreated whiplash injuries resulting from car accidents, can lead to serious and debilitating physical damage. While this type of injury often causes immediate pain, a whiplash injury may not appear to be a matter of concern immediately following a car accident. Many individuals make the mistake of believing that a lack of visible physical damage indicates that all is well.
Seek Medical Help for Whiplash and Other Injuries
Due to the potential serious consequences of leaving any type of neck injury untreated, it is wise to always see a physician as soon as possible to check for injuries such as:
- Pinched nerves
- Damaged nerves
- Joint damage
- Ruptured ligaments
- Blood vessel damage
- Back pain (upper and lower back)
- Damaged back muscles
- Shoulder pain
- Spine fractures
After a whiplash diagnosis, your physician may even recommend working with a chiropractor, in conjunction with his treatment plan, to improve and increase muscle strength in your back, shoulders, and neck area, thus, reducing the possibility of your injuries causing a chronic condition.
Whiplash Injury Claims
Whiplash injuries are most likely to occur in a rear-end accident. These types of accidents force your upward body forward and then back at a high rate of speed, and set in motion a volatile situation for severe and traumatic injuries that, if left untreated, can affect the quality of your life from that point forward.
