Watch as Dr. Keith Murray, DC talks about what you should expect if you are a driver or passenger in a motor vehicle accident. Some injuries may present themselves right away as others may take days, or even weeks to be known. Signs and symptoms and things that you can recognize after you’ve been in an accident. Even low speed impacts you can still has symptoms. Delayed symptoms head aches, neck pain, back pain or changes in moods. One of the other things to remember is that PTSD, post traumatic stress disorder can also present itself as mood changes- you may be agitated, scared or have anxiety about driving or have flash backs of the accident.
Sometimes we can have soft tissue that makes us sore – this can not be seen on x-rays and that is why it is important to get checked out because you want to make sure that this does not lead to an even more serious issue.
