WHEN DEALING WITH A PERSONAL INJURY, TIME IS CRITICAL TO AVOID LONG TERM DISABILITY
If you've been injured in an accident, don't wait to be examined by our medical doctor to determine the extent of your trauma. Even if you feel fine now, make the call to LASR Clinics!
Being the victim of a car accident can and will change your life. Whiplash and other related injuries will lead to long term disability if not treated appropriately and in a timely manner.
Many believe that their injuries are not severe because the symptoms did not appear immediately after the accident. According to WebMD; “ Sometimes, the pain of a neck strain is immediate. In other cases, it can take several hours or days before your neck begins to hurt.” (1) WebMD also warns of concussion risk during car accidents, “The blow that causes neck strain can sometimes cause a concussion, too.”
Car accidents and the injuries you suffer are serious, and potentially life threatening. Even though the symptoms may not manifest immediately, or even for several days, it is still vital to recognize the symptoms and seek appropriate medical care.
Here are some, but not all, of the symptoms you may experience :
- Pain, decreased range of motion, and tightness in the neck or back. The muscles may feel hard or knotted.
- Numbness, tingling, weakness, cramping or pain in your neck, back, arms or legs.
- Shooting pain into your arms or legs
- Headaches at the base of the skull that radiate towards the forehead.
- Sleep disturbances
- Difficulty concentrating
The Mayo Clinic gives this direction to anyone experiencing the above symptoms:
“See your doctor if you experience any neck pain or other whiplash symptoms following a car accident, sports injury or other traumatic injury. It is important to get a prompt and accurate diagnosis and to rule out fractures or other tissue damage that may be contributing to symptoms.”(2)

Call us now to schedule your free consultation to see if you can benefit from a comprehensive treatment plan.
Remember, treating the pain is called pain management, while treating the cause of the pain is called LASR Therapy.
