After being involved in an automobile accident, if there has been any trauma to the head, the person should definitely go to the Emergency Room to be evaluated. While at the hospital, they can be evaluated for any internal injuries as well.
Sometimes there may not be any pain for days, weeks, or even months after an accident. Symptoms that should never be ignored after being involved in an automobile accident include headaches, dizziness, difficulty swallowing, neck pain, back pain, rib pain, and chest pain.
Once a person gets clearance, then they should definitely go to the chiropractor to have their spinal alignment checked and any whiplash or soft tissue injuries evaluated and treated.
It is really important to get checked right away because early detection is always going to be key to long term health.
