Immediately following your accident there could be an adrenaline surge that mask your pain which can be a normal defensive mechanism by your body following injury.  This is why it is best to come in for an examination for yourself, spouse or children immediately following a car wreck. 


  1. Most all Medical professionals all agree that the first 72 hours after an accident are the most critical and treatment can be the most effective if treated right away.

  1. Statistics show the longer you wait for treatment after you are injured, the longer it takes to heal and prolongs treatment and can become permanent.

A myth your insurance company might tell you. "You will heal on your own, because it was minor".  No, most likely, you can have pain and disability for many years without care. Even at speeds of 4-10 mph. 

However,  if you have any of these symptoms, call us immediately for an examination.

  Reasons why you should be examined by the "Louisville Accident Doctor" following a car  wreck!

 

1) You may be injured and may not even know it.  Our doctors are very experienced in care and treatment of auto injuries of the spine, joints, and soft tissues.


2)  Injuries such as whiplash may not show symptoms for hours, days or even weeks.  


3) Medical professionals all agree that the first 72 hours after an accident is the most critical and effective time to receive treatment.  Delay may lead to chronic, permanent and/or arthritic changes.


4) The majority of injuries from automobile accidents occur at speeds of 6-12 MPH. Your car may not reveal any damage, but your body might.  Cars are designed for collision,  are bodies are NOT!


5) A soft-tissue injury may become permanent. If not properly treated, scar tissue can form around joints, in ligaments and muscles leaving them less flexible and prone to re-injury.


6) Scar tissue can start forming on soft tissue after the first 24 hours and cause more pain and disability if not attended to.
