Being in a car crash is a very difficult situation from many other injuries - on a number of levels. Your pain is sometimes secondary to the aftermath of having your car at the mechanic or body shop as well as the stress of dealing with your insurance for vehicle repairs and potentially missing work.
While you are understandably in a hurry to get your car fixed and to get back to normal activities, make sure you don't delay in getting your pain addressed as well!
Contact Dr. Diane Smith at Advanced Wellness and Sports Rehab before you make any other major decisions regarding your health.
Because Dr. Smith has extensive training in helping people following major injuries like car crashes. Also, even if your symptoms feel seemingly minor at first, like a stiff neck or something similar, there could be underlying injuries that are difficult to uncover and that will not allow you to recover fully.
A car crash is a major event and the trauma that comes from them could be significant - these injuries may last several weeks, some may last a year or two and others may be life-long.
Dr. Smith has done extensive training in the evaluation, management and recovery of soft tissue and hard tissue problems including those that could result from the trauma of a car crash. Make sure you see Dr. Smith to get a full examination.
