Get a Medical Check up, it’s your life!
Did you know that Pain from Auto Accident Injuries can linger for years, did you get a medical check up afterwards?
If you’’ve ever been in an auto accident, one of the first things you probably did was look yourself over, trying to find any visible signs of injury. This reaction is a common one, because we’ve all been taught not to make a “big deal” out of scratches and bruises, but the reality of a crash can be much different.
While the twisted metal of your vehicle might portray the physical aspects of an accident, your body can absorb the pain in a variety of different ways—many of which can lie hidden under the surface for hours, days, months, or even years!
This misunderstanding can often lead to a delay in feeling a lot of things— from headaches to back pain—but to fully understand how an accident can really affect you, you have to understand that the force behind a crash doesn’t just travel through your vehicle—it also travels through YOU.
The most important task for you after an accident is to IMMEDIATELY come into your HealthSource Physician for a medical check up .
