How Does Whiplash Affect The Rest Of Your Body?

Posted by Cobb Chiropractic Clinic on Jun 10, 2019 5:00:55 PM

If you've ever been in a car accident, you likely sustained some type of injury.

Even the most insignificant fender benders can cause some type of damage to your body.

Luckily, most of them aren't serious, but the damage has still been done.

Sometimes you think you've escaped without injury, but hours, or even days later you start developing symptoms that you haven't noticed up until that point.

That's why it's always important to seek medical attention after an accident, no matter how you feel.

When you're involved in an accident, your endorphins and the flow of adrenaline can prevent you from feeling any pain immediately after the fact.

Serious injuries can go undetected until the body has had a chance to return to its normal state.

One of the most common injuries you can sustain during your accident, that can also go unnoticed, is whiplash.

Whiplash frequently occurs in car accidents because of the sudden impact that accompanies them.

Most people think whiplash only affects your neck.

It does affect your neck, but it can also affect you in many more ways.

In the article below we will learn about whiplash, and how it affects your body.

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

Posted by Cobb Chiropractic Clinic on Jun 10, 2019 4:58:50 PM

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 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. 

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. When you file a lawsuit, medical documentation is extremely important, and when you wait to be seen, or do not go at all, your settlement offer can be severely reduced.
