The Absence of Symptoms Does Not Indicate An Internal State of Wellness
As a result of the accident, some injured persons notice immediate back and joint pains and other symptoms while others experience immediate symptoms that diminish or go away altogether. Often months or years later symptoms such as neck, back and other health problems develop as a result of the accident, but that they may not relate to the accident.
Symptom Masquerading Endorphins
Many times the body responds to an injury by producing endorphins, which minimize pain, masking underlying injuries so they are not diagnosed and predisposing a person to back and health problems long after the original incident.
Common Symptoms of Accident Injuries:
