Car accidents are a common occurrence around the world. Many people within the past year have been injured in car accidents. Injuries sustained in a car accident can be mild, moderate, severe, life-threatening, or life-ending. Many people who have been injured in car accidents will suffer from side effects for the rest of their lives when they do not seek out the proper care following an accident. Schilsky Chiropractic Center is the leading car accident chiropractor in Jacksonville, NC. Seek out the help of a qualified medical professional following any car accident.

Immediately following a car accident an individual may feel little to no pain. Adrenaline can also block pain signals to the brain. There is also a phenomenon known as “pain gating” which will only allow the body to feel the most painful injury. Pain gating may mask other injuries for days or weeks. Also, inflammation from an injury can take up to 72 hours to fully develop. Individuals can continue to develop injuries and symptoms for weeks after a car accident.

Car accidents can cause individuals to have pain and immobility issues for months or years following a car accident. Without the proper medical attention joints may become restricted, muscle guarding may cause scoliosis, and normal body function may plummet. Car accidents can cause both neck and back problems that can go unnoticed or untreated for years.
