Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) December 09, 2012
A car accident between two vehicles imparts a considerable amount of force on the body and spine. Even in low speed collisions, the forces add up to several times the force of gravity. This means your body generally cannot resist such large forces without being injured. These whiplash injuries may be minor, such as a muscle strain or more substantial, involving stretching of the disks and ligaments of the spine.
Las Vegas chiropractor Dr. Michael Reiss, has recently published a book titled “The Las Vegas Car Accident Victim’s Health Guide.” The book is now available on Amazon.com in both paperback and Kindle formats. Dr. Reiss has treated over 4,000 Las Vegas residents, with an emphasis in treating patients suffering with neck or back pain after a Las Vegas car accident.
"Will these whiplash injuries always cause neck pain or headaches right after the collision? Only if there is severe damage to tissues will you experience immediate pain after a collision. But most low speed collisions do not produce this type of instantaneous and intense pain. Instead, the person may feel "shaken up" or a little stiff," says Dr. Michael Reiss.
"Unfortunately many patients interpret this stiffness as nothing more than a simple muscle strain and do not seek treatment for whiplash injuries. Up to two weeks can go by before you start to feel the effects of a whiplash injury. This is why it is important to see a doctor immediately to see if things are truly ok following an auto accident," says Dr. Michael Reiss.
