Car Accident Injuries Q & A

Why Do Most Accident Related Injuries Take So Long to Start Hurting?

During an automobile or another type of accident, the body releases a large amount of adrenaline. This allows the person to remain focused on their environment and doing what needs to be done to survive. It can take several hours for the adrenaline and other "fight or flight" chemical messengers to dissipate within the body. Once those neurotransmitters are gone, the body begins to send the signals that relay pain from the injury sights to the brain. This can take up to 24 hours to occur, giving the person a false sense of security and leading them to believe they have not been seriously injured.

Why Are Soft Tissue Injuries So Painful?

Soft tissue injuries can be extremely painful, especially those received in a car accident. Part of the reason for this is that a person who sees a problem and begins to anticipate a collision will begin to tighten their muscles. This contraction compresses the muscle tissue, causing the injury to be sustained on a smaller, denser area of muscle. As the muscle begins to relax, the tissues expand revealing a much larger impact zone. When a muscle is hit during a contraction the pressure can cause bruising deep inside the muscle. Not only is the impact area larger, it is also much deeper and the pain is much more intense.
