If you are involved in a rear end collision, even a minor one, it is important to seek professional help. Depending how hard the impact was, you may need medical attention at a local Emergency Room where x-rays can be taken to determine if there is a fracture. Even a minor automobile accident can cause pain and injury, as the force of impact damages muscles, ligaments, discs and nerves to varying degrees. Pain may occur immediately or manifest in 12-48 hours or even several weeks later. Pain relief medication may provide a temporary reprieve, but the underlying damage still remains and can degenerate over time and lead to future pain. The most common conditions are whiplash and lower back disorders.
After any impact-related collision, it is important to consult a doctor who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of motor vehicle injuries. PRI’s team of doctors, therapists and specialists, are specifically trained to treat the symptoms associated with whiplash and lower back injuries, and most importantly, can prevent degeneration and subsequent dysfunction in the years ahead.
