If you’ve been in a car accident, whether it was a serious collision or a minor fender bender, the impact of one vehicle colliding with another can cause a variety of injuries.
Whiplash is one of the most common injuries sustained during car accidents. Whiplash usually occurs when you’re in a rear-end collision.
The force of the impact forces your head to jerk forward and back suddenly and sharply, which can damage the muscles, tendons, and other soft tissues in your neck.
Head injuries, including concussions, are also common car accident injuries. If your head collides with anything, the trauma forces your brain to move back and forth rapidly within your skull, which can damage your brain cells.
The impact of an auto collision can also damage your spine, the muscles and soft tissues of your back, and other joints such as your elbows and knees, which could smash into a door or the dashboard of your vehicle.
Pain is the most obvious sign of an injury. However, you may also have stiffness, swelling, or bruising, or find that you have a reduced range of motion. Whiplash, for example, can reduce your ability to turn your head without pain.
You might also feel disoriented or have some confusion or memory issues following an accident.
You should seek medical attention as soon as possible after a car accident, even if you don’t have any pain or other symptoms. You may experience a surge of adrenaline during your collision that could prevent you from feeling pain for hours or even days after your accident.
At Renewed Wellness, our doctors offers expert diagnosis of car accident injuries and can identify signs of an injury and start treatment before you even begin to have pain, swelling, or bruising. If you start treatment early, you can reduce or even eliminate your risk of painful or disabling symptoms.
Renewed Wellness provides highly personalized care following a car accident. Depending on the type and severity of your injury, our doctors may recommend:
