Head, Neck, and Back Injuries Require Immediate Medical Attention

The symptoms and severity of an injury aren’t always evident immediately following an accident. Head, neck, and back injuries are especially sneaky. What may seem, at first, to be minor aches and pains could turn out to be much more severe over time. That’s why it’s extremely important to get checked out by a medical professional as soon as possible.

The most frequent causes of head and neck injuries are rear-end car accidents, however there are many types of accidents that can cause a head, neck, back, or spinal cord injury. Motorcyclebicycle, or pedestrian accidents often result in these types of injuries, as do contact sports injuries, and even physical altercations and assault.
