Why It’s Important to Seek Treatment After a Motor Vehicle Accident
Did you know that over three million whiplash injuries occur each year resulting from motor vehicle crashes?
Of these whiplash injuries, 500,000 people will develop chronic pain, and up to 300,000 will have some degree of disability.
Even if you don’t think you’ve been injured, it’s important to be evaluated following an accident.
If you’ve been in a car accident, there is a good chance you’ve sustained microscopic tissue injuries at the least, and possibly more serious injuries, which may not yet be producing symptoms.
Having an evaluation by a specialist will provide additional evidence for your case, and will be one of the first documents insurance companies request if you put in a claim for personal injury.
Many times, victims of motor vehicle accidents do not have any visible injuries and do not feel any signs of pain following their accident.
This is due to the release of adrenaline and other hormones to help the body cope with the car accident.
However, when these effects wear off, the pain symptoms settle-in days or weeks later, and often by this time the insurance company is no longer willing to pay for your medical treatments.
Therefore, we recommend that all victims of car accidents in Washington state make an appointment to be evaluated by a professional accident injury doctor within 72 hours of the accident’s occurrence.
Regardless of the severity of the accident, if you’re in a little bit of pain or a lot, you should schedule an appointment for evaluation.
Common Symptoms Following a Car Accident Include:
- Neck and Shoulder Pain
- Dizziness or Vertigo
- Balance Issues
- Brain Fog
Brain Injury Following an Auto Accident
Approximately 23% of people injured in a car accident have suffered a TBI (CDC).
In addition to other types of injuries, Rebound SportsMed offers specialized care for those suffering from Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) or Post-Concussion Syndrome following a motor vehicle accident.
If you’ve been experiencing any of the following symptoms after an injury, there’s a good chance you may have sustained a mild or traumatic brain injury and should seek immediate medical attention – dizziness, vertigo, headaches, balance issues, neck pain, blurred or double vision, or difficulty concentrating.
But my MRI says I’m fine?
Often when individuals are experiencing symptoms of a head injury, it’s not uncommon for imaging studies show no abnormalities.
Through the use of functional diagnostic testing and FDA market-cleared technology for the detection of TBI and concussion, we can determine the severity of your injury and identify functional abnormalities traditional imaging devices are not able to identify.
One of the most common type of brain injury we see in our office comes as a result of the head and neck getting thrown back and forth rapidly during a motor vehicle collision. This is what is commonly referred to as whiplash.
Whiplash causes the brain to slosh against the insides of the skull as the head and neck accelerate and then come to a fast stop, which can injury the brain as well as spine.
