Types of Pain After Car Accidents
Car accidents occur about every 5 seconds in the United States. Car accidents can be a major shock for your body. During an accident a great deal more force is applied to your body than it is meant to deal with. From fender benders to major collisions, these accidents can result in pains that will stay with people long after the accident. The most common types of pain associated with car accidents are:
Neck & Shoulder Pain - this includes soreness, stiffness, and reduced mobility in the neck. These symptoms are often associated with whiplash.
Muscle Strain - during an accident muscles may be stretched or torn.
Back Pain - commonly in the lower back, this type of pain can often become chronic among patients who do not seek treatment.
Headaches & Dizziness - often these symptoms worsen in the weeks after the accident occurs.
Treating Pain from Car Accidents
The spine can often be seriously affected during a car accident due to the force suddenly jerking your body backwards and forwards. Oftentimes, it may take days or weeks for the full extent of your injuries to become evident. Chiropractic care can help to ease the pain from both recent car accidents and lingering pains from past accidents, it is best to seek chiropractic care soon after an accident to prevent further damage.
