Understanding Your Auto Accident Injury
Auto accident injury develops in all manners of car crashes, from high impact collision to simple fender benders. The sudden deceleration and change of direction that occurs can transmit high amounts of force on tissues in our bodies, even if a car crash involves speeds of only 10-15 miles per hour, and easily lead to inflammation, irritation, and injury.
A few of the most common auto accident injuries include:
- Joint dislocations, often in the neck, shoulder, and spine
- Disc herniation or bulge
- Muscle strains and tears, especially in the shoulder and neck
- Whiplash syndrome
- Nerve strains or impingement
- "Dashboard knee" and similar types of contusions from blunt force impact
Common Signs and Symptoms Associated with Auto Accident Injury
People who experience an auto accident injury typically begin noticing signs and symptoms within a day or two after their accident. Acute symptoms include swelling, redness, stiffness, pain, and warmth in the affected area. If nerve impingement occurs, a person may experience numbness or tingling in the part of the body that falls along that innervation path, or have other symptoms such as headaches, insomnia, mental fogginess, and jaw pain.
Sometimes, these symptoms may not show up until days or weeks following an incident, because of fluctuating levels of stress hormones which can sometimes have a natural analgesic effect. So even if you feel "fine" after a car crash, don't assume you're walking away injury-free!
Fortunately, chiropractors can identify hidden signs of injury and treat these ASAP to help you avoid bigger problems!
