Car Accident Injuries Continued

Earlier, we talked about some of the different possible injuries that can occur from a car accident. While we focused mainly on the neck and head, these are not the only places that you can experience pain or damage due to a car crash. While naturally we hope that you never have to deal with an accident that leaves in you any pain, much less lasting pain, it has been shown that by balance of probability you will experience some complications due to a crash in your lifetime. Here are some of the other things that you can experience due to a car accident.

Back injuries are extremely common after a crash. These can take many forms, ranging from pain to herniated disks and paralysis. Any damage to the spinal column should be treated with the utmost care by a trained medical professional. This is because spinal column damage can, and often does, result in nerve pain and damage. Having a spinal cord injury is something that should never be treated lightly, as it can cause complications even years down the road if not taken care of correctly when it happens. Always be sure to ask your doctor to check you out for any possible back injuries after a car crash.

The sad thing is that any body part can be damaged in the event of a car accident. This is especially true if you are a pedestrian or are on a bicycle or motorcycle. Injuries from being hit can occur internally and externally both, as well as physically and mentally or emotionally. Everything from your head to your toes may be injured, especially extremities such as arms and legs. Even if you don’t think you have been hurt after an accident, always be sure to get checked out by a trained medical professional. Adrenaline which occurs naturally after an event such as a car accident can mask pain that you are experiencing. Make sure that you have a clean bill of health after any crash, no matter how small.

If you have sustained injuries from a car accident and your doctor gives you the green light to do so, call Accident and Injury Center to see if we can help. A spinal adjustment or other treatment may help relieve the pain that you can feel after a crash. Come in and see what we can do for you!
