What Are The Most Common Injuries From Car Accidents?
Whiplash injury is the most common injury associated with car accidents. This type of injury can also be called a sprain/strain injury. Whiplash can be seen in the neck, mid-back and even in the low back.
This type of injury can cause lack of overall mobility, ligament damage and severe pain. Without proper correction and treatment, whiplash injuries will lead to long term dysfunction and chronic, nagging pain.
Headaches are a very common symptom following a car accident. After ruling out significant injuries such as fractures or concussion, we often see cervical instabilities (instabilities in the neck region) that lead to nagging, unrelenting headaches.
These headaches after a car accident rarely go away on their own, and often times can lead to years of discomfort and pain.
Low Back Pain
Low back pain is a very common symptom that we encounter after a car accident. Even though the low back is typically a strong and stable structure, the force of impact can cause misalignments in the lumbar spine that lead to severe pain that can even start to radiate down the leg.
This low back pain can be everything from burning sensations to numbness and tingling. These symptoms are a warning sign that something more severe could be going on.
