5 Things You Didn't Know About Auto Accidents

person with neck pain after auto accidentDid you know that auto accidents can do even more damage to your body when the airbags don’t go off? Or, how about that even minor fender benders can mean big pain problems down the road?

At Cincinnati Rehabilitation Center, we work with patients who have been in all kinds of car crashes, both big and small. It’s our job to help you lead your healthiest life, and one of the ways we do that is through education. Here are a few things about vehicle accidents you may not have known!

Even if you don’t feel pain right away, that doesn’t mean injuries didn’t happen. Sometimes, it can take days, months, or even years for serious pain to show up.
Accidents that happen at slow speed can cause serious issues in your body. That means that even if you’re in a minor fender bender, whiplash can still occur, resulting in spinal misalignments.

When you’re in an auto accident, the force from the crash actually travels through your body. That means that if a car hits your car when it’s traveling 30 MPH, that amount of force is being transferred through your body upon impact. When you look at it that way, it’s easy to see why so much damage can be done to your nervous system!
Your car insurance may cover some of your chiropractic adjustments with our practice. We’re happy to submit claims on your behalf, and can even get you set up with an attorney if you’d like to speak to one.
