When you've been in a serious car accident, it seems obvious to see a doctor if there are broken bones, excruciating pain, or bleeding involved. However, often times even minor car accidents can cause future medical conditions that are not at first apparent. It's important to get checked by a qualified doctor when you've been in a car accident. Consider the following story:
Sarah was in the car with her mother when a large truck lightly hit her car. There was a slight turn to the right in the road when the truck accidentally went into Sarah's lane and bumped her car. The accident was not major and the truck only seemed to bump her car. Sarah felt that she had no complaints of any injuries. Her mother urged her to see a doctor with her that afternoon just to make sure they're okay. Sarah insisted that she felt fine and had no reason to see a doctor to get checked. Within a week, Sarah began to experience frequent headaches, which was strange for her because she rarely ever has headaches, and they don't usually last. Sarah finally decided to be checked by her doctor, who confirmed that she had a subluxation caused by her recent car accident which accounted for the headaches she's been recently experiencing. After a short series of treatments, Sarah no longer had headaches and is back to her regular active life style.
Often times, we base the decision of whether to see a doctor after a recent car accident on the level of pain or discomfort we experience. However, some injuries don't actually "hurt" until they are allowed to progress. Pain can even be avoided if a car accident victim gets checked by a doctor right away.
Muscle spasms, subluxations, micro-trauma, and inflammation are ALL minor injuries that may feel painless to individuals but that can ALL lead to painful arthritis if not treated right away.
