What Are Common Types of Auto Accident Injury?
Common types of auto accident injury among our patients include:
- Whiplash, a syndrome caused by literal whip-like snapping of the neck when the body is jostled forward and backward
- Shoulder pain: may occur due to the impact of the restraint or direct blunt force trauma; we often see shoulder dislocation, rotator cuff strains, and brachial plexus damage (the brachial plexus is the “highway” of nerves running through your shoulder)
- Sciatica: compression of the sciatic nerve is a common consequence of a disc herniation or bulge which can occur due to aberrant forces in the spine leading to disc rupture or protrusion
What Are Symptoms of Auto Accident Injury?
Symptoms of an auto accident injury vary but commonly involve swelling, pain, limited mobility, headaches, jaw pain, weakness, numbness, tingling, difficulty sleeping, stress, mood dysfunction, and problems with focus, attention, and memory.
Certain people feel “fine” for several days or weeks, then fail to realize that their “out of nowhere” issues can be traced back to an earlier auto accident. This may happen because stress hormones involved in the flight or fight response can mask pain, and if these hormones remain elevated for a while due to stress, they can hide signs and symptoms of injury.
My Accident Was Minor. Can I Still Be Suffering From an Auto Accident Injury?
Yes! Even minor fender benders can strain the human body. We recommend consulting with a chiropractor in Cape Coral after any type of auto accident. You’ll never know for sure how your body has been affected until we can assess your posture, spine, nervous system, and other important elements of health!
How Can a Chiropractor in Cape Coral FL Treat an Auto Accident Injury?
Auto accidents don’t happen in a vacuum. In other words, you may have pre-existing issues (such as postural imbalances, core weakness, and poor body mechanics) that exacerbate your auto accident injury. Our chiropractor in Cape Coral can alleviate symptoms, heal injured tissues, and address any underlying problems through services such as spinal adjustments, spinal decompression, and cold laser therapy in order to accelerate healing and help you avoid long-term complications.
