If you've been in an auto accident, it's a good idea to consult with a chiropractor as soon as possible. At Back in Motion Chiropractic and Sports Rehab Center in Beaverton, OR, we have years of experience treating auto accident injuries. Our chiropractor and team can help minimize and relieve pain and inflammation caused by auto injuries.
Common Auto Injuries
When you're involved in a car crash, the sudden external forces like acceleration, deceleration, change of direction, or even direct blunt impact can lead to inflammation and tissue damage throughout your body. We commonly see auto injuries affecting the neck, shoulder, back, hips, and knees, including the following:
- Concussion and post-concussion syndrome
- Shoulder dislocation
- Muscle spasms and strains
- Spinal ligament sprains
- Vertebral bone fractures
- Disc herniation or disc bulge
- Knee trauma ("dashboard knee")
You might notice your auto injury right away, or it could take a few days or months for the pain, swelling, stiffness, and other symptoms to show up. Many people find that headaches, insomnia, or ringing in the ears become a frustrating issue following their car crash.
Hoping your auto injury symptoms will just go away on their own could end up making a minor injury even worse and lead to long-term problems like chronic neck pain, headaches, joint pain, and mobility issues due to scarring. We recommend consulting with our chiropractor after an auto accident of any size to promote whole body wellness and rule out any hidden injuries that could otherwise flare up in the future.
