There you were sitting at the red light humming along to the tune on the radio. You are thinking about what to make for dinner, do the kids have practice tonight?, is this the night you have the meeting with your…….BAM!!!!!
Out of nowhere a pickup truck plows into the back of your vehicle.
What just happened???!!!!
It starts to sink in, you were hit from behind. All of the cars that were in front of you are gone.
You feel stunned.
The driver of the truck is standing next to your driver’s window asking if you are Ok?
“I think so” you answer as you open your door and start to get out.
When your left foot hits the road you feel pain shoot down your leg. Your head is pounding. Your heart is racing. Your right arm is numb.
“Are you Ok?” the driver asks again. No blood, I’m standing up, I must be fine.
But you are not. Now what?
An ER visit is appropriate but oftentimes people tell the responding officer that they are okay. You are still in shock from the impact.
If you do go to the ER you will likely be evaluated. X-rays will be taken and you will be given pain medication and muscle relaxers.
You are good now right? Usually not.
Your spine sustained a trauma and you now need corrective care to reduce your pain, restore your function and significantly reduce the likelihood of developing chronic problems that can negatively affect the rest of your life.
