When you think about it, car collisions are the meeting of two (or more) multi-tonned moving objects. Is anyone surprised that if you are inside of one of these objects that there can be significant forces placed upon the human body? You shouldn’t be. There are documented instances of death in collisions where the cars were moving at very slow rates of speed. Accidents are moments of stress and stress causes the human body to release adrenaline. Adrenaline hides pain. Because of this, if you have been in an accident, you may think that you are okay…until the next day. Often times we speak with people who thought they were fine and the next day are black and blue all over. It’s not unusual in the least, but if you have been injured, make sure that you go see a doctor. Many people assume that they will be okay and wait. We urge you not to wait. It may be nothing, it may only be bruising, but as the old adage goes, it’s better to be safe than sorry. This is about your health and the one thing I know is that all of my clients would tell you that if they had a choice between making a million dollars and having their health back, all of them would tell you they would take their health. Long term pain and suffering is the real danger of a car collision, so don’t take any chances with it.
