Automobile Accidents
 
An auto accident can be one of the most stressful events in life.  Usually we tend to think first, of damage to the automobile, the financial impact to us, what will we drive, etc., when in reality we should be thinking of the possible damage to ourselves!  We need to put ourselves first!  Cars are replaceable, bodies aren't!  We've got one body that needs to be cared for, and needs to be placed on our priority status!  After all, a body's got 80 years or more and truly is irreplacable! 
 
Most people are unaware that some injuries can go undetected for months, even years after a car accident.  Insurance companies settle and the victim is not compensated for any pain or treatment needed from these undiagnosed injuries.  If left untreated, the injury will worsen over time. 
 
There are many injuries that can be associated with auto accidents. 
 
Did you know that auto accidents can cause post-traumatic osteoarthritis?  Osteoarthritis damages your posture and can cause a slumped or hump back appearance.  It can also cause disc degeneration in the spine, which creates scar tissue formation which leads to chronic stiffness.
 
Whiplash is also a common injury from auto accidents.
