Most people end up in at least one auto accident during their lifetime. Even seemingly minor impacts can cause injuries that result in pain for years. Sometimes the pain doesn’t appear for hours or even days after the wreck. It’s always advisable to have an assessment performed after an accident, even if you initially feel fine. Our chiropractors at Mi Spine Management Clinic can evaluate you after your accident to look for any issues that might cause you pain or other issues in the future.
The adrenaline your body produces during a traumatic event can mask symptoms of an auto accident injury. Over the next 24 hours, you might experience:
Any time there is an impact between your vehicle and another one or other object, it creates a force on your vehicle and your body. The neck and back are especially susceptible to the effects of an impact. Whiplash, herniated discs, and injuries to the spine.
One of the most common types of auto accident injury is whiplash, a neck injury that results from the rocking back-and-forth of your neck. It usually occurs when another vehicle strikes you from behind, but there are other causes such as playing contact sports. When the force of an impact causes the head to be quickly thrown backward and then forward, it can injure bones, disks between the vertebrae of the spine, ligaments, muscles, nerves, and other types of tissue in the neck.
