Auto Accidents can result in serious physical injury to the spine including injury to the neck and low back. These crashes can result in serious physical harm which can impact your life significantly. Symptoms may occur immediately following an auto accident. There are times when symptoms may not show up until several weeks later. It is a good idea to consult with a chiropractor following an accident.
The severity of your injuries is dependent upon the force of the impact and the position of your body of the moment of impact. It takes a rear end collision of only 5 mph to sustain a neck injury. Your body goes through a rapid and intense acceleration and deceleration following an auto accident. It is beneficial for you to be evaluated by a chiropractor following an accident even if you don't feel any pain. With a sudden and forceful movement, damage to the vertebrae, nerves, discs, muscles, and ligaments of your neck and spine can be substantial. Minimal or no property damage to your car does not mean you have not sustained an injury. Collisions in the 6-12 mph range cause the highest percentage of whiplash injuries. Many cars can absorb forces in this range without showing any damage.
