Auto accidents are an unfortunate occurrence that can strike us at any time. The resultant force of the acceleration and deceleration process that results from an auto accident travels through our body creating various trauma. These forces can rip and tear soft tissue structures such as muscles, ligaments, tendons, and even spinal discs.
The most common injury is known as the Whip Lash injury which is caused by a rapid forward and backward movement of the head causing pinched nerves in the neck and upper back. Whip lash injuries are most commonly caused by rear impact auto accidents. Lower back pain is another common injury caused by auto accidents.
This is usually caused by a slipped or bulging disc which pinches the spinal nerves. Other common injuries created by auto accidents are shoulder pain, elbow pain, wrist pain, hip pain, knee pain, and ankle pain. At Spine and Joint Chiropractic Rehab Clinic, we specialize in treating the physical pains caused by auto accidents.
