The "Hidden Gems" of post-MVA

Your case is unique, and so are your injuries.

When car accidents happen, it's not just the immediate pain and discomfort that are important to consider. Other symptoms may not manifest until days or weeks later. These hidden injuries include emotional trauma, psychological and cognitive issues that don't show up right away but can cause long-term problems if left untreated. Given the nature of these types of injuries and their delayed onset, it's important that you tell your doctor about any unusual symptoms you're experiencing so they can start looking for possible causes--and working toward solutions as soon as possible!

Emotional and Cognitive effects can be as important

After a MVA we often think that physical injuries are the only ones to worry about, but emotional and cognitive effects can be equally as important as physical injuries.These hidden gems are not readily noticeable, thus are more likely to be overseen. They can also be delayed, which makes them harder to recognize and treat.

As an example, emotional (psychological) symptoms often include:

  • Depression;

  • Anxiety and panic attacks;

  • Mood swings or irritability;

  • feeling emotionally numb;

while cognitive symptoms are likely to include:

  • Difficulty concentrating or focusing on tasks;

  • memory problems and disorientation.

In addition to causing distress in themselves these conditions also make it difficult for patients to manage their pain effectively and can have long-term consequences for your life, so it's important to know about them and get the help you need!

Early detection can save your quality of life

After a MVA it is important to get evaluated by a knowledgeable doctor as soon as possible so that any problems can be caught early on before they become more serious and interfere with your daily life. No symptom is too [insignificant], when it comes to MVA. If you're having trouble sleeping or feeling stressed out, get easily confused with your daily activities or noticed a change in appetite, take note of these issues and see if they can be linked to the accident's timeline. Then, make a call to a specialist!

Finding the right expert for your needs can be difficult; there are so many different types of professionals that specialize in various areas, including post-MVA assessments. The best way to start is to consider an accredited medical assessments centre to get a thorough and general overview of your current conditions and health concerns. The practitioner will take note of any injuries, assess their severity, and make recommendations for further referral to the right specialists.

Regular checkups with your physician are also necessary to ensure that you continue improving and any new or long-term issues can be timely detected and reflected in your treatment plan.
