Have You Been Injured In An Accident?
Many people don’t realize that they have been injured, and don’t suspect they are, especially when there was little or no damage to the car. But, did you know that many whiplash injuries occur during low speed collisions where there was little or no damage to the car?
Auto accidents induce a variety of injuries from head to toe. Cervical Acceleration Deceleration (CAD) Injuries, or Whiplash, can cause sprains and strains of the muscles in the neck, intervertebral disc bulges, herniations, and protrusions, torn ligaments, and even fractures of the bones of the neck. These injuries can cause symptoms such as headaches, migraines, aches, pains, numbness, tingling, burning, electrical sensations in the arms and hands.
CAD injuries, whiplash can also cause traumatic brain injuries otherwise known as concussions. Post-concussion symptoms include; forgetfulness, dizziness, headaches, difficulty finding words, confusion, short temper, moodiness, among many other things. Brain injury severity can vary greatly and should be evaluated immediately if these symptoms arise.
Of course injuries to the back in the thoracic, lumbar and pelvic regions, as well as to the shoulders, elbow. Wrists, hips, knees, ankles and feet also occur frequently with this type of trauma. The key with motor vehicle accident injuries is to be evaluated as soon as possible. Patients tend to respond best when conservative treatment begins immediately after accidents. Delays in evaluation and care are factors in these injuries becoming permanent conditions with which people have to suffer with throughout their lifetime.
