Guidelines on Post-Accident Pain Management

Share

Pain management following a car crash.

An automobile accident can occur suddenly and without warning. Often times, the symptoms of pain and discomfort may not occur instantly but could take up to 24 hours or more to develop. As the victim, it’s important to learn how to deal with post-accident injuries and the first action to take is seek medical attention.

Whiplash is one of the most common injuries resulting from an automobile accident. Whiplash is a result of damage to the soft tissue in the neck, causing symptoms of pain and discomfort in the region. Headaches may also be a common symptoms after a car crash as well as numbness in the area surrounding the neck.
