It can be difficult to recover from an auto accident injury. If you don't receive the proper treatment, your injury could become worse over time. That's why you should visit Dynamic Motion Chiropractic in Winston Salem as soon as possible after an auto accident.
Common Car Accident Injuries
When a vehicle is struck, it can cause your head and neck to jerk back and forth. These rapid movements can injure your neck, causing symptoms like pain and stiffness, limited movement, and headaches. In many cases, the pain doesn't appear until a few days after the collision.
Soft Tissue Injuries
It's common for people to experience muscle pain or soreness after an auto accident. While several types of injuries can cause these types of symptoms, sprains and strains are the most common causes. Strains are a soft tissue injury that occurs when muscles or tendons are stretched or torn.
The impact of a car accident could lead to slipped or herniated discs. This can lead to sharp pain in the back, legs, hips, or other parts of the body. A herniated disc can also cause numbness or weakness.
The impact of an accident can cause your knees to collide with the dashboard. This could damage your kneecaps or ligaments. Injuries that cause knee pain can also make it difficult to walk and move around. Some injuries can even make it hard for you to extend the knee.
An auto accident can throw your body out of alignment. Your accident could put pressure on one of your nerves, leading to pain, numbness, and other symptoms. Nerve damage can cause pain throughout the body and also give you a pins and needles-sensation.
