Why Home Remedies May be the Worst Idea After an Accident

Posted By Cobb Pain & Rehab || 9-Mar-2017

Experiencing a car accident can be overwhelming. With all the stress of having to deal with insurers, a wrecked car, police reports, and seemingly endless paperwork, many people do not realize that they have suffered an injury and do not pay attention to the pain.

It is normal for the victim to be in shock, which delays the onset of pain. Sometimes, people may think that if there is no visible blood or bruising, they must be fine. Another common misconception is that if there is pain resulting from the accident, it will disappear with the days. Many people turn to the hot water bottle or over-the-counter pain medications like ibuprofen or acetaminophen, and although the pain may subside for a while, there may be a hidden injury that is important to detect and treat.

The biggest mistake people make after an accident is to wait several days or even weeks to be examined by a medical professional and try to handle their recovery on their own. Remember that even if you do not feel pain, you may still have some kind of injury. You should find a doctor to diagnose you and provide you with the treatment needed to avoid future problems or a slow recovery.
