Auto Injury Treatment

No matter the severity of a car accident, it can leave lasting mental and physical damage to an individual. Another danger is that injuries can take months to fully manifest, which can lead to years of chronic pain if you don’t get treated in a timely fashion.

Instead of waiting for the symptoms to show themselves, we at Falling Waters Injury and Health Management Center in Bend want you to seek out car accident treatment option right away. We know the red flags to look out for, and we document everything in case you need to take legal action.

Car Accident Injuries Can Start off Invisible

Car accidents are a stressful adrenaline rush that triggers fight-or-flight mode. Feeling pain is secondary to survival. This survival reaction delays the onset of pain. 

Some Auto Injury Statistics

  • A vehicle moving at 2mph generates enough force to cause a whiplash injury
  • Between 15 and 40% of auto accident injuries lead to chronic pain
  • Roughly two-thirds of motor vehicle accidents result in whiplash injury
  • Whiplash symptoms don’t set in until up to two days after the accident
  • 45-85% of whiplash victims suffer up to five years later due to the spine losing its correct curvature

Both minor whiplash and concussion injuries aren’t minor at all. Whiplash creates a cascade effect of painful problems, including chronic pain and interfering with nerve function. And neurosurgeons will be the first to tell you there’s no such thing as a minor concussion. They can cause memory problems, recurring headaches, and a variety of mood and balance issues.
