Types of Car Accident Injuries We Treat
Soft Tissue Injuries
car accident injury due to whiplashLikely the most common injury from car accidents, soft tissue injuries involve damage to muscles, tendons, and ligaments. These can range from bruises and cuts to heavy tissue damage and severely mobility-limiting injuries.
Damage to the soft tissues of wrists, hands, fingers, feet, and toes can be easily underestimated. These extremities absorb impact from car collisions and can become swollen, achy, or even lose mobility over time.
Back injuries (lower, mid, and upper) can also occur from sudden impact car accidents and can often be helped by chiropractic adjustments. Herniated discs are some of the most common back injuries from car accidents. Since spinal discs are soft, flexible tissues, they can easily sustain damage from heavy impact. As the disc flexes and absorbs impact, part of the tissue may herniate and pinch nerves along the spinal cord, causing pain throughout the body.
