Auto Accident Injuries

Have you been involved in an accident recently? Did you start having pain immediately, or was there a delayed onset? Injuries often occur to our neck and/or back even after minor crashes. Sometimes these injuries are not felt for days or even weeks. Research has shown that impacts that change your vehicle's speed by as little as 5 mph can cause you injury. One of the most devastating types of impacts is when your vehicle is struck from the rear. The spring action of the seat as well as the car being knocked forward can cause some of the worst injuries and symptoms in your neck and back.
Some of the symptoms you might have are as follows:
  • Neck pain
  • Upper back pain
  • Lower back pain
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Blurred vision
  • Sore throat
  • Arm or leg pain and numbness
  • Confusion/disorientation
  • Sharp pain
  • Stiffness in the neck and back
Long-term complications of these injuries:
  • Chronic life-long pain in the injured areas
  • Headaches
  • Arthritis formation
  • Muscle weakness
  • Recurring bouts of neck and back pin
  • Depression
  • Disability
Did you go to the ER after your accident? Their job is to determine if you are “critically” injured. If you don’t have any imminent life-threatening injury or any fractures/dislocations, you are often discharged with some pain medication and instructions to follow-up with a physician.
Back & Neck Care Center of North County in Florissant, Missouri, has treated these types of injuries with successful chriopractic services for years. If left untreated, these injuries often can lead to a lifetime of pain or even disability.
