Common Car Accident Injuries
Auto manufacturers try to make cars safe. They equip seatbelts and airbags to reduce risk of injury if a crash or other accident occurs. Unfortunately, not all injuries can be prevented. Below are some of the more common car accident injuries that you may experience.
Whiplash occurs when your body has been violently jerked. Because of the jerking motion that occurs during a car accident, it is no surprise that this is the most commonly reported injury after a car accident.
If you are in a car accident and feel pain in your neck and back, stiffness in your neck and back, a headache, dizziness, or blurred vision, then you should visit a chiropractor for treatment.
A herniated disk refers to a spinal cord injury, which occurs when pressure is put on either the spinal cord or the nerves surrounding the spinal cord.
If you feel numbness, tingling, weakness, or pain in your back, arm, or leg, then you may have a herniated disk, which requires help from a chiropractor.
In addition to the pressure put on your spinal cord, enough force, especially in the abrupt nature of a car accident, can cause damage and possibly breakage to your bones.
This often includes symptoms of pain, swelling, tingling, or numbness.
Treatment for Car Accident Injuries
If you experience an auto accident injury, then you should seek treatment from a chiropractor immediately.
Before invasive treatment is considered, chiropractors work to reduce pain and help restore normal movement.
