Car Accident Injuries Can be More than Neck Pain and Back Pain
Getting into a car accident or motor vehicle accident can be more than a pain in the neck. When someone is involved in a motor vehicle accident (MVA) they can be jostled about in the car, banging their knees against the dashboard, have their neck whip side to side or have their trunk go forward and back with such force, their low back gets thrown out of alignment. After all of that, you have to find the wherewithal to obtain the other driver's information, call 911 to begin the emergency recovery process, and await the tow truck.
You may feel pain right away. Some of the time, it takes a good couple of days for the full symptomology of your accident to manifest. The adrenaline you got after the impact has faded and the aches and pains are getting worse. If you haven't gone to the ER or Urgent Care yet, follow up with your PCP. They can maybe order X-rays for you faster than waiting in the ER.
