How Long Will It Take for My Whiplash to Go Away?

Posted by Cobb Chiropractic Clinic on Sep 7, 2018 11:37:53 AM

Just like with any injury, there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all healing process for whiplash. 

No two people are exactly alike; therefore, everybody heals differently and at different times. 

The average recovery time for whiplash injuries is about 6 weeks.  However, the healing process will vary from person to person based on the severity of the injury and personal characteristics such as age, mental health, and occupation.   

People who are more severely injured from the accident will take longer to fully recover.

5 Common Delayed Injuries After A Car Accident

Posted by Cobb Chiropractic Clinic on Jul 20, 2018 9:37:57 AM

Car Accidents can cause serious injuries and emotional stress, even if the damages to the vehicle are not severe.

Each person reacts differently to a motor vehicle accident, which means some may experience immediate pain, while others may not feel symptoms until days or weeks later. Even some serious injuries may not present any signs until several days later. 

In many cases, the car accident victim will walk away from the accident with their adrenaline elevated and may even feel fine, but over the course of the next several hours or days, they may begin to feel a lot worse, until they realize that something might be very seriously wrong. 

Unfortunately, when this type of situation occurs, it can get in the way of not only your health and recovery but also a potential personal injury lawsuit.
