How Car Accident Injuries Cause Emotional Distress

November 27, 2018

 

A self-assessment after car accident injuries may be helpful. Yet, it is not the same as a chiropractor evaluating your body. You may start to assess how you are feeling after a car accident. It is important to look for cuts or bruises and even determine your level of pain. However, there are symptoms the show a serious injury that might not appear right away. These symptoms can persist for days and weeks after a car accident. When the symptoms are not evident it can be easy to assume that you do not need to see a chiropractor. What if your car accident injuries happened months ago? Car accident injuries that happened even long ago can leave your body with long-term effects. Chiropractors are trained in treating car accident injuries. They can provide you with a thorough evaluation and diagnose the problem.

 

Emotional Distress and Symptoms

Mental distress often occurs after a car accident. When your body goes into shock the car accident symptoms can be ignored. Your body usually gets an adrenaline rush causing it to become very numb. Right at the moment the car is being involved in the accident it usually causes a shock. Immediate pain may not always be felt. However, weeks later the pain from car accident injuries might be felt. It is best to see a chiropractor when the pain appears. Did you know that emotions, like anxiety and depression can cause muscle tension? Headaches are also a physical symptom that results from a car accident.

 

How Injuries Cause Emotional Distress

Car accident injuries can also stimulate emotional distress such as tension and nervousness. This could make it difficult or even impossible for some to ever want to enter a vehicle. The anxiety could cause some to never want to drive again. Chiropractors treat most car accident injury pain. These injuries include arm, leg, chest, back, neck, shoulder, feet and knee injuries.
