According to Dr. B. Timothy Harcourt, DC, When It Comes to a Car Accident Size Does Matter!!
Streetcars, trains, heavy dump trucks, concrete trucks, and 18 wheelers produce far more damage than their smaller counter-parts, the car.
Lower speeds from a high mass vehicle can cause severe spinal trauma, lowered function, and severe debilitating pain.
The research above shows that a relatively low speed crash with a high mass object can cause severe damage to your spine and/or brain.
If you have been involved in an accident and need to be evalauted and treated for those injuries, give me a call at Coast Chiropractic Centers, Inc on 7270 College Parkway Fort Myers, FL 33907 by calling 239.278.3344 option # 1.
