Bodily tissue injury
The sooner you are examined; adjusted after an accident generally the quicker you heal and are able to reestablish your normal activities. “Maybe it will go away” attitude can end up prolonging treatment and establishing neurological, and soft tissue problems that are more resistant to recovery , than if treatment is started soon. Car accidents result in trauma to the body, even if you don't feel anything initially. In fact, aches & pains resulting later in life can be the aftermath of an auto accident you suffered many years earlier.
