What Happens to the Body in an Auto Accident
The forces involved in auto accidents of nearly any size and speed are transmitted to the bodies of the drivers and passengers inside. This high and sudden force, including acceleration, deceleration, change of direction, and blunt impact, can easily strain, sprain, pull, and otherwise inflame and irritate tissues, including joints and joint capsules, muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, and discs.
A few of the most common conditions we see in our patients who have undergone auto accidents include:
- Muscle strains (often in the neck, back, and shoulder)
- Joint dislocations (again commonly seen in the spine or shoulder)
- Whiplash (a neck pain syndrome)
- Sciatica and other types of nerve compression (typically caused by a misaligned joint or bulging/ruptured disc)
Symptoms of an Auto Accident Injury
Even a minor auto accident injury can lead to long-term complications if left unaddressed. We recommend consulting with a chiropractor after you've been involved in an auto accident. No symptoms are too small to be ignored, especially because they don't always give the full picture of the severity of the underlying injury.
This is because stress hormones (which surge dramatically during trauma) can mask pain and may take time to return to their normal resting levels.
Common signs and symptoms of auto accident injury include pain, stiffness, headaches, jaw pain, ringing in the ears, joint hypermobility or a feeling of instability, mental fogginess, anxiety, and swelling and redness.
