So, you are just sitting at a traffic light or stop sign minding your own business...and then suddenly, you hear a loud crashing noise and get jolted forward in your seat, as someone else's vehicle hits yours from behind!
You may think that you were not injured if your vehicle wasn't damaged much. Today's vehicles are built better to absorb the impact, so they can take a bigger hit without getting as damaged. When your vehicle doesn't show much damage, it often means that the force from the crash was transmitted to you, the occupant, as opposed to the vehicle. Current research proves that serious injuries can occur with just a mild "fender bender." Low impact collisions cause injury, too!
Any sudden impact where the body is thrust forward then back quickly will place an unnatural demand on the muscles, ligaments, joints, and spine. Don't delay, as an untreated whiplash injury will only worsen over time!
A trip to the emergency room will generally cost you a lot of money, and it usually doesn't stop the pain or fix your problem. They may give you a neck brace and/or prescribe some medication that will only provide temporary relief, if any at all. If your family doctor finds nothing wrong, there remains the possibility that a whiplash injury still exists. You need a trained professional!
