Auto Accident Injuries

What are some common auto accident injuries?

Auto accidents can cause a wide array of injuries, including:

  • Strains and sprains in your low back
  • Seat-belt injuries to your waist or neck
  • Herniated disc or bulging disc
  • Subluxations, or misalignments in your spinal vertebrae
  • Traumatic injuries to your bones
  • Cranial injuries
  • Stretched, injured, or irritated nerves

The most common injury from an automobile accident, however, is whiplash.

Whiplash happens when your head rapidly jerks from one direction to another, like a whip being cracked. Whiplash can severely damage the muscles, fascia, ligaments, and soft tissues in your cervical and upper thoracic spine, and can lead to:

  • Pain in your neck, shoulders, upper back, or arm
  • Blurry vision
  • Neck stiffness, or an inability to turn or rotate your head
  • Dizziness or vertigo
  • Low energy, fatigue, or depression
  • Ringing in your ears
  • Numbness or tingling in your feet, hands, or arms
  • Insomnia

Whiplash symptoms could range from mild to severe and tend to be worse if your headrest was positioned too low, where it can cause broken bones or tissue damage. If you’re experiencing whiplash symptoms, schedule a visit with Mustang Chiropractic immediately for an evaluation.

How soon after my accident should I seek care?

The general consensus amongst doctors is that you should seek medical attention within 72 hours of any automobile accident. Even if you don’t think your condition is bad enough to treat, you might have underlying issues that don’t present noticeable symptoms until later, when they’re more difficult to treat. You only have one spine, and it’s important to treat it well, so make sure to visit Mustang Chiropractic as soon as possible after your auto accident.
