More than 50 percent of all Whiplash Injuries occur as a result of a low-speed car accident or those where the vehicle(s) was traveling less than 15 miles per hour (mph). Although it may seem logical to avoid medical treatment if your vehicle is not damaged, low-speed accidents can still cause tissue damage and other underlying injuries that require immediate attention.
Neck pain is one of the more prominent symptoms associated with Whiplash Injury, although it does not always appear right away. The symptoms connected to Whiplash and other common accident injuries may take several weeks to a few months to become noticeable. And, when you do start to notice that your neck has lost some of its mobility or you begin suffering from recurring headaches, permanent damage may have already set in.
To avoid potential impairments and chronic pain, it’s recommended to visit with one of our Atlanta Car Accident Chiropractors within 72 hours of a car crash. Early diagnosis and treatment gives you the best chance to experience a complete recovery, as well as avoid potential health complications over time.
