What Happens to the Body in a Car Accident?
Cars are large containers of metal, and when in motion, they handle an immense load of energy known as kinetic energy. At the moment of an impact or abrupt braking, all of that force transfers to our bodies.
Kinetic energy is the force a car has due to its motion. As the speed of the car increases, so does the kinetic energy. Kinetic energy slowly disappears when a car gradually stops by pressing the brakes. However, the sudden force of an accident interrupts the natural process of kinetic energy disappearing.
Most modern-day cars are constructed to absorb this massive energy in a collision. However, due to high speeds or sudden movements, passengers are the first affected, no matter how prepared the vehicle is to receive the impact.
To treat injuries that occur in an accident, the following procedures for the recovery of their patients:
- Chiropractic Care
- Physical rehabilitation
- Massage Therapy
- Spinal Decompression
- Cold Laser Therapy
