Being involved in a car accident is scary business, especially when you consider that about half of all people injured in a collision can develop chronic lifetime pain.
Most people make the mistake of being more concerned about their vehicle than their health. Remember that a car can be replaced, but you only get one body!
Getting a detailed examination by a doctor trained in resolving car crash-related injuries such as whiplash should be your first priority. Most of the time people don’t feel any pain immediately following an accident. It’s only later when the adrenaline wears off and inflammation sets in that people realize they suffered an injury. Even with no symptoms it’s important to get examined right away, since prompt treatment leads to better results.
Here at Atlanta Spine Group, we offer a complimentary consultation with our doctor to go over the details of your accident, answer your questions and help you determine your best course of action. Remember, the consultation is a conversation and not an obligation to receive care in our office.
