There is a wide range of outcomes that can occur when an individual has endured a traumatic car accident. Coma, shock, paralysis, lacerations, emotional trauma, even intense confusion, and daze. After an accident, it is always important to seek medical attention because your best health and wellness are dependant on obtaining a proper diagnosis of any injuries you may have sustained and started treatment early. Often, an individual can have injuries that they didn’t know they sustained until a couple of days after an accident.
Certainly, the uneasy feeling of disorientation or lack of balance are red flags that can tell you that something is wrong. These symptoms are not normal, nor are they healthy. When you are struggling to concentrate, having foggy thoughts, and having difficulties staying upright, you could have a very serious injury that is causing these outcomes. Whiplash and concussions are two very common injuries that result from the violent thrashing of the head and body back-and-forth during an accident.
Concussions are caused when your brain hits against the inside of your skull. The impact can cause bleeding. During an accident, the intense momentum thrusting your body forward and then the recoil back can severely impact your bain and result in a concussion. Concussions are a form of traumatic brain injury and the results are far greater than just daily inconveniences. Long-term serious effects can interfere with your quality of life and your ability to function normally.
It will take a qualified medical professional to evaluate your condition and determine if you sustained a concussion. Plenty of rest is needed to begin the recovery process. One who is recovering shouldn’t be stressing themselves out by any highly physical or demanding situations even those that are purely mental. Medications to help with headaches and pain can assist you during your healing process with any residual pain.
Whiplash is very common in accidents when individuals are struck from the rear. There can be severe neck and head pain as a result and it can lead to chronic pains and even issues with mobility if it goes untreated. Whiplash is another injury that isn’t often realized until after an accident is over when one doesn’t quite feel right and is having difficulties with daily life.
A medical professional will evaluate your condition and check your range of motion as well as pain level and location. You will be provided a treatment plan that can help manage your pain, improve your range of motion, and help you regain your ability to function during daily life again.
