With Auto Accidents
Too often people in Charlotte don't seek treatment following a car accident because
they don't feel hurt. By far, the most common injury to the neck is a
whiplash injury. Whiplash is caused by a sudden movement of the head,
either backward, forward, or sideways, that results in the damage to the
supporting muscles, ligaments and other connective tissues in the neck
and upper back.
If you have been involved
in a car accident, whiplash injuries need to be taken very seriously. Because
symptoms of a whiplash injury can take weeks or months to manifest, it is
easy to be fooled into thinking that you are not as injured as you really
Unfortunately, by the time more serious complications develop, some of
the damage from the injury may have become permanent. Numerous studies
have shown that years after whiplash victims settle their insurance claims,
roughly half of them state that they still suffer with symptoms from their
injuries. If you have been in a motor vehicle or any other kind of accident,
don't assume that you escaped injury if you are not currently in pain.
