Why You Shouldn't Wait to Get Treatment Following an Auto Accident
Studies show that patients who receive early treatment soon after an accident have better outcomes than those patients who wait.
During a crash, the tissues of your neck can be stretched and damaged. You may not feel pain right away but as the tissues become swollen and inflamed patients often wake up the next day with a sore, stiff neck. These symptoms are signs of trauma to the ligaments and muscles of your neck and the body responds by restricting movement to heal the injury by sending white blood cells to the area.
Your body will then begin repairing injured the area by laying down scar tissue, the problem with scar tissue is that it reduces the already limited range of motion in your neck; which if not treated properly can result in permanent limited mobility, chronic pain and even spinal degeneration of the joints.
Getting early treatment will break up this pattern by increasing movement in the injured area and prevents the development of scar tissue.
