Auto Accident Injury
The time following an auto accident injury is often full of confusion, followed by a great deal of pain. Auto accident injury is especially difficult to deal with for some people because it does not always present itself in the moments directly after the accident. For example, a person may be hit from behind in a car accident and will feel fine for the first day or so -- but the next morning that same person can wake up feeling extreme pain in the back, neck, shoulders, or nearly anywhere in the body.
Headaches and migraines often accompany auto accident injury. The type of injuries sustained in an auto accident or a truck accident are very often what medical professionals call "soft tissue injuries." This essentially means that there has been an injury to the soft tissue in your body (as opposed to a bone injury such as a broken leg.) This includes vertebral discs, muscles, and quite a bit of your spinal column in fact. Since your body absolutely must have a properly working spine in order to feel well or have full mobility, soft tissue injury can prove extremely serious if it is not treated.
When you are involved in any type of auto accident it is very important that you see a medical professional in the time immediately after the accident to determine if you have sustained an auto accident injury -- even if you feel well at that particular time. Some auto injuries, such as whiplash, may take a day or two to show themselves after an accident happens.
