Like most people, sooner or later you may be involved in an auto accident. If you are fortunate, you won't be hurt. However, you should be aware that not all spinal injuries are immediately apparent. Though serious injuries are obvious, many people do not notice any significant pain until hours, days, or even weeks after their accident.
Your spine contains dozens of pain sensitive ligaments and joints as well as five separate layers of supportive muscles. Soft spinal discs can bulge or rupture as the result of sudden stress from an accident. In short, there are any number of structures which may lead to pain, spasms and loss of function after you accident.
Never 'assume' that all is well. A simple examination should be performed after any vehicular trauma in order to be sure no damage has been done.
