Car and trucks crashes are generally the most common way that area community members suffer a spinal cord injury. Even minor car crashes are capable of causing spine problems. Immediately after a motor vehicle collision many of those involved are in a state of shock. At these moments, the body automatically kicks into high-gear. With adrenaline levels running high, many victims are often unaware of any injuries they’ve experienced, even severe injuries, until hours after the crash. That is why those involved in all motor vehicle accidents are well-served by visiting a doctor immediately following the incident. In addition, the serious nature of all spinal injuries makes it vital for victims to continue receiving treatment for as long as the doctor recommends. This is the best way to ensure that the injuries heal fully without the potential for further complications. Depending on the type and severity of the injury, many spinal injury victims are also referred to a physical therapist that helps the injured party regain as much mobility, flexibility, and functionality as possible.
