5 Common Delayed Injuries After A Car Accident

Posted by Cobb Chiropractic Clinic on Jun 10, 2019 4:18:49 PM

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.
