What Injuries Are Caused by Auto Accidents?

Auto accidents put a lot of strain and pressure on the body that can result in a number of injuries. Trauma related to an auto accident can affect the entire body. While some are more serious than others, pain and swelling are almost always a part of an auto-related injury.
The most common types of auto injuries include:

  • Whiplash
  • Headache
  • Jaw Pain
  • Knee Pain
  • Back Pain
  • Neck Pain 
  • Shoulder Pain

Many people who have been in accidents may also experience symptoms such as blurred vision, sleep disturbances, dizziness, irritability, and forgetfulness. It is important to have an assessment from a medical provider following a car accident, even if you are not experiencing symptoms. Sometimes, it can take days or even weeks for symptoms related to automobile accident injuries to be noticeable.

What Is Whiplash?

Whiplash is a common injury sustained in an auto accident. It is typically the result of a rear impact while stationary. The impact causes the head to suddenly jerk forward and back, putting a significant strain on the cervical spine and surrounding muscles and tissues. Whiplash is not a life-threatening injury but can result in significant and long-lasting pain and discomfort, especially if left untreated. Symptoms of whiplash include:

  • Neck pain
  • Headaches
  • Tenderness and pain in the shoulders and back
  • Stiffness and a reduced range of motion in the neck, shoulders, and upper back

Lifestyles Healthcare Group has Whiplash Chiropractors and Therapists to help you get the pain relief treatment you need.

How Is Whiplash Treated?

Treatment for any auto injury will depend on the unique condition of each individual patient. The healthcare providers at Lifestyles Healthcare Group will perform a thorough evaluation to determine the extent of your injury and the pain you are experiencing. Treatment may include manual adjustments, massage therapies, and rehabilitative treatments and exercises. It is important to seek care as soon as possible following a car accident as most injuries and related conditions can be managed and treated more easily in the early days before the body compensates for the injury and ends up causing more discomfort in different parts of the body.

Don’t postpone, get your car accident relief today!
