If you’re involved in a car accident, it may take some time for your body to recover from the trauma. Read on to learn what you should expect for your body following a car crash.
The Pain Doesn’t Always Come Right Away
If you’re involved in an accident, you may not know if you’ve sustained injuries right away. It can sometimes take hours, days, or even weeks for the pain of your injuries to become present.
You see, when your body goes through trauma, such as that from a car crash, it takes measures to try and protect you. Your body does this by going into shock. When your body goes into shock, it releases extra adrenaline to help you cope with the trauma.
When your body releases extra adrenaline, that can result in the absence of pain from your injuries. You could have significant injuries from a car accident and not feel them for hours, days, or even weeks following the wreck.
That’s why you should always seek medical care after an accident. Closed head and spinal cord injuries are quite serious and need to be treated right away in order to avoid serious long-term consequences later on.
When The Pain Does Come, It Can Hit You Like a Ton of Bricks
Just because you don’t feel the pain from your injuries right away doesn’t mean you won’t feel it at all. In fact, when the pain does arise, it can hit you all at once. If that happens, it can feel like your whole body is falling apart.
If you have yourself checked out by a physician right after the accident, they’ll be able to tell you what you should expect going forward. They’ll also be able to provide you with any necessary treatment and/or medication.
