There are many symptoms of a neurological injury, and each of these should be treated with equal gravity. After a car accident, do not assume that the symptoms will get better when you go home. The impact of a vehicle accident is stronger than you think, and you must seek care immediately.
HERE ARE A SOME OF THE MORE COMMON SYMPTOMS:
Car accidents cause serious medical issues, so seeking help for orthopedic therapy after a car accident is crucial if you have injuries.
Inability to comprehend or retain information, forgetfulness
Feeling extremely irritated or anxious
Ringing of the ears or hearing a humming noise
Hypersensitivity to light
Feeling dizzy, faint, or “spaced out”
Bouts of nausea or vomiting
Stiff, sore, or tender muscles—especially in the neck or back
Tingling, numb, or stinging sensations in the arms, fingers, legs or toes
No feeling in the arms, fingers, legs, or toes
Slurred or hard to understand speech patterns
Did you refuse treatment and go home after your accident? If you’re now feeling any of these symptoms, they are indicators of a serious neurological issue and require immediate care.
IMMEDIATE SYMPTOMS VS DELAYED SYMPTOMS AFTER A CAR WRECK
Symptoms of an injury don’t always appear right away. These variances are a result of the severity of your injury, shock after the accident, and your own tolerance for pain.
Other car crash victims don’t realize they’re injured right after the accident. Their body has kicked into high gear, and the adrenaline rush is making them unaware that they have symptoms of a neurological injury. Or, they went into shock and can’t comprehend the extent of their injuries until later. These indications can seem whenever from a couple of hours to half a month after the mishap.
When the wounds become evident, you probably won’t interface it immediately with your mishap, particularly if a brief period has slipped by. When you do end up symptomatic, call for help.

Well Being office is great! I dragged a box of files at work and started having lot of back pain, i went to my regular Dr and he started doing x-trays and giving me drugs for the pain. Every day i was feeling worse and told a co-worker that i did not know what to do anymore because I keep going to my regular Doctor but he was not helping me, so she tells me i will give you a Chiropractors name that helped me b4 with my back pain just in case you want to go. i went to them and it was worth to go, with 4 visits i was able to go back to normal activities, i had my last visit yesterday and i hope to continue feeling as good.
A friend of mine recommended me to this place and I'm so glad she did. I street parked and shuffled my way to this clinic but I'm out now strutting back to my car. I was impressed how Dr. Goldshteyn knew my left was tense and limited in mobility with just a touch.
When I woke up this morning in a great deal of pain the first thing I told my husband was that my left side felt like a 2x4 was stapled along the spine. The doc has some magic hands! No I'm not getting a free soda with my meal, nor did they ask me to write a review, this is a legit recommendation! If you have back issues give this place a try!
I have recently become a patient at Well-being Chiropractic, in a great deal of pain initially but now being treated by their doctors and I have been feeling much better. The multidisciplinary treatments of physical therapy, accupuncture and chiropractic medicine offered have improved my overall health. I feel cared about by the staff and individual treatment, time and patience given to me. The facility is pristine, inviting and comfortable. The office staff is helpful, friendly and organized. I highly recommend this facility and Dr Goldshteyn , she is kind, supportive, knowledgeable and professional.
I'm 37 and when I first came to Dr. Goldshteyn I had a strange tingling sensation down my left arm and leg. I had trouble sleeping, sitting - anything that required me to be in the same position for longer than an hour. I expected to come for the occasional adjustment, and was taken aback when she recommended a treatment plan. But I'm glad I followed his plan. After 6 weeks the tingling sensation has nearly subsided and her recommendations have completely changed my life for the better.
