Rehabilitation

Months after an auto accident

04/12/2006

Question:

I am a 61 year old female who t-boned a car while going 50 mph. in Sept. 05. I wore a seatbelt and the airbags deployed. I had a chest contusion, a bloody nose, and nerve damage to the upper lip. Is it possible that seven months later, the muscle soreness in my neck, arms, legs, lack of energy, and knee pains could be a result of that accident?

Answer:

It is possible. However, you should probably see a qualified physician to be certain. A physiatrist (a doctor who specializes in rehabilitation) can help with this.
