Low speed collisions can be more than a pain in the neck. Watch the video and see for yourself. Your car is the target and the bullet vehicle transmits up to 2-5 times the force of the collision to you.

Being involved in a car accident can be one of the most frightening experiences you go through in life. Typically you are sitting at a stop light waiting for the light to turn green when you hear brakes screeching and look up into your rearview mirror and see a car about to hit your car. Wham! You have been rear ended. Dazed for a few seconds you jump out of your car to view the damage. Looking at your car you do not see any damage as the shock absorbing bumper has done its job. Unfortunately you start to notice a dull ache in your neck and the beginning of a headache. Seeking proper and timely care is essential to prevent a lifetime of neck or back pain. Dr. Randy McCracken has undergone further advanced training for the treatment of soft tissue injuries from car accidents and has written this article to provide you with some basic information you should know so you do not end up being a pain in the neck or back for the rest of your life!

What are the most common injuries after car accidents?

Most people have been lead to believe you have to be involved in a high speed or hard impact collision to suffer any injuries. Unfortunately this misinformation has been put out there by the insurance industry. Low speed collision can be just as damaging to the human body as high speed impacts as research studies have proven.

Injuries such as fractures, concussions, and cuts are immediately noticeable. Some injuries take time to develop if muscles, ligaments and nerves are injured. You might notice mild neck soreness and stiffness after being rear-ended. The next morning you may awake with more pain and the inability to turn your neck or have lost your voice, all as a result of the collision. It is extremely important you be evaluated as soon as possible after your car accident by a spinal specialist. Dr. Randy McCracken is one of the few health care professionals specializing in the proper treatment of car accident injuries.
