Common Car Accident Injury
Injuries to the soft tissues are the most common instances of car accident injury. These injuries include trauma and/or damage to the feet and toes; wrists, hands, and fingers as well as to the back and neck.
These areas often absorb a lot of the impact in an auto accident. This results in injuries ranging from mild to severe with symptoms that match. These symptoms include loss of mobility, burning, tingling, numbness, loss of strength, and pain.
Whiplash Injury – Hidden but Not Gone
The most common soft tissue injury in car accidents is a whiplash injury. Whiplash occurs when a sudden change in direction – such as is caused by the unexpected stopping, shooting forward, or jerking left or right in an automotive collision – causes the head and neck to “whip” around unrestricted. This causes damage to the soft tissues and delicate bone structures of the neck.
It often takes some time – commonly 48 hours or more – for the damage of an auto accident injury to present itself. This is due largely to the body’s release of natural pain fighting chemicals – like dopamine – in response to the accident.
This can make it hard to receive the treatment and insurance benefits due to you. Seeing a chiropractor immediately after an auto accident helps ensure that any injury or damage is quickly identified and treated. This strengthens your insurance claim and helps to prevent the injury from creating permanent damage.
