After an auto accident there are a lot of things to consider, your health should be number one!
Motor Vehicle Accident Information
No matter how fast you are going or how much damage is done to your car, any time you are in an accident, damage is done to your body. The amount of damage that is done to your car is not equal to the amount of damage done to your body. Research shows that even if you have no damage to your car, you can still sustain injuries in an accident. Automobiles are designed for a collision, but the human body is not.
Injuries sustained in an accident can have long term effects if left untreated. Even without symptoms, it is a very good idea to see a doctor in the case of a car accident. There can be damage without symptoms, or there can be delayed symptoms. Your doctor can help to determine the location and extent of your injuries and develop an appropriate treatment plan. The doctors at Active Living Chiropractic have extensive post-graduate education in Whiplash Injuries and Brain Traumatology through the San Diego Spine Research Institute.
