Motor Vehicle Accident and Onset of Symptoms

motor vehicle injury

At the Centeno-Schultz Clinic we acknowledge the potential impact of a motor vehicle accident(MVA).  If conservative therapy fails to provide signficant and sustained  pain relief we have a variety of treatment options.

A MVA can be unsettling resulting in confusion, lack of focus, pain and restriction in range in motion.

Does onset of symptoms have significance?

Richter studied this issues in his analysis of 1176 whiplash-type neck injuries.

Richter demonstrated that complaints starting within the first 24 hours revealed no significance in regard to the duration of symptoms.

Complaints that began after more than 24 hours however lasted twice as long as the rest.

Be safe.  Focus on the road and if you are involved in an accident acknowledge that your symptoms may develop after the initial injury and that there are advanced therapies available.  You do not have to live in pain.
