Common Auto Accident Injuries

Every day, many people are adversely affected by automobile accidents. These unforeseen tragedies often result in painful injuries that make it difficult to perform daily tasks and activities. We effectively treat the following injuries:

  • Back Injury: In a car accident, your low back (lumbar spine) or mid back (thoracic spine) can be injured. Additional back injuries like disc herniations can also occur in a car accident, which can cause spinal cord compression.
  • Neck Injury & Whiplash: Whiplash can cause impingement, stretching, or irritation of the nerves and the spinal cord, as well as other symptoms of neck pain.
  • Knee & Hip Injury: Knees can get forced into the dashboard or back of the seat causing knee pain. If the force is great enough, then this can also cause hip pain and result in lack of mobility.
  • Shoulder & Arm Injury: Shoulder pain and injury are surprisingly common with car accidents, and there are many ways in which you can injure your shoulder. The type of pain in your shoulder can vary depending on the type of injury, from dull and achy pain to sharp or burning pain.
  • Muscle Injury: Injury to the muscles, tendons, and ligaments are extremely common in auto accidents. Sprains and strains are referred to as soft tissue injuries (soft tissue includes muscles, tendons, and ligaments).

If you have been in an auto accident, it is important to start treatment early. We encourage you to set up an appointment with a doctor.
