Can your vehicle be repaired?
If your car was badly damaged, it may be “totaled”. Insurance companies usually consider a car to be a total loss if the cost of repairing it is 75% or more of the fair market value of the car.
Why visit the doctor?
It is estimated that 15-40% of those who are injured in a motor vehicle collision will suffer from ongoing chronic pain (Journal of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, 2007). Whiplast injuries can increase the incidence of chronic shoulder and neck pain, also increasing the incidence of other systemic ill effects on health. Whiplash injury causes more than neck pain and headache, it will affect the health of your entire body. Essentially 100% of those who are suffering from chronic pain caused by a whiplash injury will have an abnormal psychological profile with standard assessments, and the only way to resolve the abnormal psychological profile was to successfully treat the chronic spinal pain. Psychotherapy was not able to improve the abnormal psychological profile, nor was it able to improve the patient’s chronic pain complaint.
