GET CHECKED AFTER AN AUTO, WORK OR SPORTS INJURY ACCIDENT!

Most of us, at some point in time, will be involved in an auto, work or sports injury accident.   Sometimes the soreness, stiffness, neck and back pain are immediate. But what many do not know, is that the injuries sustained may have caused damage that is long lasting and not apparent at the time of the incident.

Take an automobile accident for example.  Research has demonstrated that the amount of damage done to a vehicle has no direct correlation on the amount of injury sustained by the occupant(s).  Studies indicate that injuries can occur from impacts at 8 mph with little to no damage to the vehicle.  Even with today’s body construction and crumple zones, the energy transmitted to the vehicle is absorbed by the head, neck, and back.

The majority of these injuries are “soft-tissue” related.  When a whiplash, slip or fall occurs, there are micro-tears that occur in the muscles, ligaments and tendons that hold the spine together.  More importantly the vertebra are often knocked out of place, further irritating the nerves.  The tears in the soft tissue begin to heal with scar tissue within weeks of the trauma.  If treatment is not quickly undertaken, that scar tissue will limit proper range of motion, and delay full recovery.  Know someone who’s hurting?  Send them in!!
