What You Need To Know About Delayed Pain After A Car Accident

Did you know… delayed onset of symptoms after a car accident is widespread!

Bottom Line
Even if you feel okay immediately after an accident, it’s always a good idea to see a Chiropractor. Often, it’s only after you’ve had some time to calm down that you even begin to notice you may be injured. Headaches, back pain, neck pain, and shoulder pain often have a delayed onset and may not appear for days.

Why It Matters
The stress of a car accident can make it difficult to assess how you feel. It takes time for swelling and inflammation to begin, and if you notice new aches or pains hours or even days after your auto accident, don’t dismiss it. Even minor symptoms can be an indication of a more significant problem.

Next Steps
Again, don’t dismiss a headache, dizziness, or back, neck or shoulder pain, ¬†get assessed by your chiropractor. Get a proper evaluation as soon as you can. Doing so has the potential to make a massive difference in your quality of life!
