During a car accident, it’s widespread to suffer an injury. According to the United States Department of Transportations (USDOT), more than 3 million people get injured annually due to car accidents in the United States, and out of those 3 million, 2 million of the injuries become permanent.
One of the problems and factors that influence chronic pain or permanent injuries is when people don’t seek diagnosis and treatment immediately after the accident. Numerous ailments appear months, or even years after the accident, one of the most common traumas is whiplash.
At Cascade Health Center, we daily receive patients with different ailments, some of them chronic that could have been prevented if they would have taken care of themself after an accident, which happened years ago.
