When in an accident, there are injured tissues that might be stiff, sore, painful or in spasms. These tissues are usually torn and will heal with no treatment, however, the scar tissue remains and will not behave like normal tissue which will result in loss of motion, pain and even can cause future disability with more pain.
**This is why it is important to receive care ASAP. Call us immediately following an accident to rule out these type of injuries before they become permanent.

You may be injured and may not know it. Injuries such as whiplash may not show symptoms for hours, days or even weeks. Medical professionals all agree that the first 72 hours after an accident is the most critical and effective time to receive treatment. The majority of injuries from automobile accidents occur at speeds of 6-12 MPH. Your car may not reveal any damage, but your body might. Bumpers are designed to prevent damage to the grill, motor, trunk and lights. They are not specifically designed to prevent the injury of the driver or passengers.
A soft-tissue injury may become permanent. If not properly treated, scar tissue can form around the soft tissues such as muscles and ligaments leaving them less flexible and prone to re-injury. Pre-existing arthritis and degenerative disease may become unstable with new injury and increase the degenerative processes.
You must act quickly to preserve your legal rights! Any attorney will tell you; getting prompt medical treatment is crucial to ensuring you are not denied or limited benefits. You may need to be off work and receive benefits in this time of unfortunate injury.
In the majority of cases treatment may be provided by your insurance company, even it’s your fault or you do not have any health insurance. If you were a passenger and the driver had no insurance then you may be covered by Kentucky Assigned Claims. This is for victims injured in an accident when the driver did not have insurance.
If you are not injured, you can sleep better at night knowing you had an extensive examination preformed and everything was fine. Statistics and Medical experts show the longer you wait for treatment after you’re injured, the longer it takes to heal and could become permanent where the body is unable to heal. If you are injured, your injuries will not heal on their own and scar tissue can become your worst enemy and cause of future permanent pain and even disability. This invariably leads to suffering and the need for others to care for you.
In A Car Crash?
Do you have blurred vision, headaches, or memory loss?
These are common signs with post-concussive disorder.
Do you have cognitive problems, changes in the ability to chose, think and understand following an accident which could include:
- Attention and concentration.
- Processing and understanding information.
- Memory and recall
- Communication or using the right words
- Planning and organizing
- Reasoning, problem-solving, decision-making, and judgment.
- Controlling impulses and desires and being patient.
Each year, approximately 1 million Americans visit their doctors after sustaining a blow to the head. The majority of these patients are injured in car crash. An accident victim does not have to even strike an object with their head when involved in a whiplash type of accident. Victims do not have to be traveling at a high speed to sustain a head injury in a car accident, which can even result in optic nerve damage. More and more drivers are on blood thinning medication and such which could make them more susceptible to injury.
Microscopic research has shown that irreversible nerve damage can occur even when the head does not strike an object, but instead is only shaken violently as in a whiplash incident. A rear impact injury of only 8 mph. could cause up to 7g's of force on the head. A formula one race car can give you 5-6 g's. The greatest misconception we see at Injury Care Chiropractic is when there is little or no damage to the vehicle, people and insurance adjusters wrongly conclude there to be no damage to the occupant of the vehicle. Bumper protect the car, not the person in the car. They are very rigid and strong to prevent vehicle damage, NOT PERSON DAMAGE.
Other factors that are so variable from accident to accident are how improper seat belt positioning, a persons weight and size, women verses men and children, positioning of head restraints, position of head and body when struct, weight of each car, braking and even bracing or being relaxed when hit determine the severity of injury. These variable are so uncontrollable that these are such important factors frequently overlooked.
If you or someone that you know was involved in car wreck and have experienced any of the following symptoms, it may be a sign of a head injury:
