In a bad crash, usually you end up at the ER. The ER physicians and staff have essentially one job: Make sure you’re not about to die. They take x-rays and make sure nothing is fractured. They make sure you’re not internally bleeding. The ER physician’s job is not to figure out your long-term prognosis from your injuries. They don’t know how long you’ll be hurt, and neither do you. That’s why it is so important to follow up within a few days after the wreck with a qualified healthcare professional who cares about you and will help you come up with a significant treatment plan. I can’t tell you how many of my clients have been sent home from the ER, only to return to the hospital for a surgery months later. Life throws curve balls- try to get ahead of them.
