If you have been in an auto accident and your child was in the back seat, you may be trying to assess your child’s injuries and concerned about what type of treatment may be most appropriate.
Several signs that your child may have been injured in an automobile accident include:
Changes in sleep patterns
Difficulty focusing at school
Complaints of fatigue
You were in the accident and sustained injuries
Relationship problems with friends and family
Child holding their head often
Child begins hitting their head against anything
Child Hospitalized, doctors can’t find the cause.
During an automobile accident, your child’s head is whipped back and forth at great speed. When this happens to a child’s young developing brain it causes more injuries than the same forces would inflict on an adult brain. The most common injury is a cerebellar fault. The cerebellum is where coordination and balance portion of the brain. Not getting your child checked following an auto injury can result in a lifetime of health problems and learning difficulties.
BUT MY PEDIATRICIAN SAID OUR CHILD WAS FINE!
Your Pediatrician may have little experience treating auto injuries, or checking for spinal cord damage. They usually have no experience looking for subluxations that can develop into health problems down the road. Subluxations are misalignments in the spine that impinge nerves and compromise the function of the nervous system. They can cause a myriad of health problems. If you have been injured in a car accident your child has suffered more injuries. Get a complimentary consultation to have your child checked out immediately
