Injured in an Auto Accident?
If you have been involved in a car accident, whiplash and other traumas to the spine need to be taken very seriously. Symptoms of a whiplash can take up to 4 weeks to manifest if they show up at all. It is easy to be fooled into thinking that you are not as injured as you really are. Too often people don't seek treatment following a car accident because they don't feel hurt. Whiplash is caused by a sudden acceleration and subsequent deceleration that results in the damage to the supporting muscles, ligaments and other connective tissues in the neck and upper back. This commonly occurs in accidents between 5 mph - 15 mph but can occur at all speeds.
Studies have shown that years after whiplash victims settle their insurance claims, roughly half of them state that they still suffer with symptoms from their injuries. If you live in or near the 405 in Orange County and have been in a motor vehicle or any other kind of accident make sure and have a thorough evaluation by Dr. Garcia, an expert in spinal trauma due to sports injuries, car accidents and falls.
