Delaying Treatment After an Auto Injury

Numerous scientific studies have indicated that when an individual receives early treatment for their auto injuries, they have better outcomes than those individuals who chose to wait.

During a collision, whiplash injuries, the most common type of injury resulting after an accident, results when the complex tissues of the neck are stretched or torn by the force of movement. It’s also common for individuals to not feel pain and other symptoms soon after the automobile accident but as the structures of the neck become irritated, swollen, and inflamed, the symptoms of neck pain and stiffness can become present a couple of days after the initial event.

When the body suffers direct trauma, it responds to the injury by restricting movement and sending white blood cells to the affected region to begin healing the tissues. In this process, the body will then continue repairing the injured area by developing scar tissue. The issue with scar tissue involves the joints in the neck, which already have a moderately limited range of motion. Scar tissue reduces the neck’s limited mobility even further and, without proper treatment, this can lead to chronic pain, and permanent limited mobility, including spinal degeneration on the joints.

Early treatment from automobile injuries can help avoid complications by increasing the movement of the injured area and by preventing the development of scar tissue. If you’ve been involved in an auto collision resulting in neck pain and other symptoms, it’s essential to seek immediate medical attention to prevent the symptoms and other complications from developing and/or worsening.

Dr. Alex Jimenez D.C.,C.C.S.T’s insight:

After being involved in an automobile accident, it’s important for people to seek medical attention in order to diagnose and treat any possible injuries but, a majority of people often prefer to delay their treatment. Because most automobile accident injuries occur on the musculoskeletal level, many people choose to delay seeking treatment until they begin to experience symptoms but, this can actually lead to further issues. For more information, please feel free to ask Dr. Jimenez or contact us at (915) 850-0900.
