Can You Help Me?
You're in your car relaxed, waiting at a traffic light. Suddenly you hear screeching tires behind you followed by the harsh sound of metal hitting metal. Before you can brace yourself, your car is jolted forward. The impact is a shock and does damage not only to your car, but your body as well.
What happens in these few seconds can have tragic consequences. And what you do about it in the next hours, days and weeks can affect your health for years to come.
Many times poeple will try to shrug off an auto accident because they "feel fine" or haven't broken any bones. Unfortunately, hidden injuries of the soft tissues surrounding our spinal joints usually occurs. In fact, recent studies done by the National Transportation Safety Association have shown that even low speed impacts at merely 5 mph have the equivalent amount of force as a 50 lb bag falling out of a 2 story window and landing on your head.
Why do I have pain in my arms and hands?
Because the nerves to the arms and hands exit the spine through the injured area of the neck, numbness and tingling are common. Even lower back pain can result directly from the trauma.
Why did my headaches start more than a week after my accident?
When you've been in an accident your body is trying to adapt. When your capacity to adapt is exhausted, symptoms can appear. This can take days, weeks, months or years to occur.
