Car accidents are a major cause of neck and back injuries as they are known for causing trauma to your body as you get jolted and jerked around during the accident. These sudden movements can not only misalign your spine, but they can also damage muscles, tendons, and ligaments as they are overstretched or contorted unnaturally. Injuries caused by auto accidents or collisions can lead to numerous health issues such as pain, dizziness, stiffness, and more. If not treated, a small injury can easily become a major issue that leads to extensive treatment and suffering.

Muscle Sprains/Strains

These soft tissue injuries are very common in car accidents, and can lead to a number of symptoms including pain, muscle spasms, cramping, swelling, and reduced range of motion. With the help of chiropractic care, your muscle sprain or strain can be properly treated and resolved quickly and effectively.

Whiplash

Whiplash, the most common injury caused by car accidents, is when the head and neck are jerked quickly in a back and forth movement. This injury can lead to a number of symptoms, such as severe pain, headaches, dizziness, blurred vision, fatigue, numbness, depression, ringing ears, and more.

TBI’s (Traumatic Brain Injuries)

One of the most common causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI’s) is car accidents as jolting and hitting your head happens often. Ranging from mild to severe, TBI’s can be accompanied by a variety of symptoms such as concussion-like symptoms, unconsciousness, bleeding, seizures, nausea, and more. 

Disc Injuries

As a general rule of thumb, disc herniations can be present post-accident and not produce pain. They can also be bad enough to produce pain, numbness, and tingling down a person's arm or leg if the herniation presses on a nerve root. It is always better for a person to have a thorough workup post-accident to make sure that there aren't a symptomatic herniations that can lead to long-term breakdown and decay of the joint and create symptoms that affect the arms and legs.

Vertigo

The severity of vertigo varies greatly from minor to severe. The main symptom of vertigo is a unique dizziness that causes the objects around you to appear to be spinning or moving to some extent. In addition, you may experience issues with hearing, ringing ears, blurry vision, difficulty balancing, exhaustion, and more.
