Motor Vehicle accidents happen every day. Often I get questions from the client concerning their injuries and they state that they did not feel they were injured at the time of the accident, but then days later their pain can indicate further medical problems.
Typically these motor vehicle accident victims cannot see an injury, such as a broken bone or open or bleeding wound. But then days later they have headaches, back pain, or have trouble completing simple everyday tasks. It is at this moment that you should seek medical attention.
Doctors will do a thorough physical examination and determine if the outward symptom is part of an underlying problem that needs addressing. I often hear complaints of headaches, stiffness in the neck and or shoulders. This is typical of a whiplash victim, that due to the traumatic forces encountered during a motor vehicle accident they may have stiff muscles, nerve damage, or worse.
Many times this pain radiates from the lower back and may indicate damage to the spinal cord, particularly, the vertebrae, muscles, or nerves. If days after your motor vehicle accident, you are suffering from pain, it is in the best interest of your health to be checked out by a medical expert. The evaluation will give you answers to the extent of your possible injury.
