Individuals involved in automobile accidents are frequently accused of pretending to suffer from pain and other symptoms in order to earn a profit from insurance companies, but the truth is that in the majority of the cases, people involved in an auto collision are actually hurt and injured. Another large percentage of those individuals also refuse to follow through a legal process after their auto accidents despite suffering from chronic pain.

In the U.S., if an individual develops chronic neck pain or other type of symptoms after an automobile accident, it’s not uncommon for them to be viewed with great suspicion by others, as if their symptoms were not real. However, researchers from the University of North Carolina School of Medicine conducted a study where the medical records of 948 auto injury patients were analyzed to evaluate their musculoskeletal pain after an auto accident. Of those patients, about 70% of the individuals reported ongoing musculoskeletal symptoms six weeks after the automobile accident. Also, more than one third of the individuals experienced pain in four or more areas of the body.

Whether or not you plan on proceeding with legal processes after an automobile accident, it is essential to seek medical attention as soon as possible to prevent chronic pain symptoms from developing. Chiropractors can help diagnose any possible injuries or underlying conditions that could be causing your pain and discomfort as well as effectively helping to relieve acute and chronic symptoms after an auto injury. Hopefully the results of this study will contribute to helping doctors and the public understand that these symptoms are common, including among patients who don’t pursue litigation.
