Lingering Pain After a Car Accident

It is surprising how long pain from a car accident can last. Initially, car accident victims often feel fine. They are emotionally shaken up, but physically don't seem to notice any severe pain. This has been explained by many doctors as a protective response by the body or what we know as shock. Unfortunately, once the shock wears off, the car accident victim feels pain set in.

When you are involved in a car accident pain is often a delayed response. Similar to a hard workout at the gym. the pain from a car accident may not be apparent until the next day. Bodily injury caused by a car accident most often is felt in the victims back and neck. This pain - caused by the force of one car smashing into another, grows over the next few days, weeks, and months.

Doctors who treat victims injured in a car accident recommend going to the local emergency room soon after the crash. It is important to have a medical doctor review the car accident victim's condition, including things that one can not measure by pain like blood pressure.
