If you spend any amount of time in a car, there is always a chance of getting in an auto accident. Car accidents result in physical damage to both the car and the passengers inside. Of course, the extent of this damage depends on the circumstances.
While it’s possible to sustain injuries anywhere in the body, the most common issues revolve around the spine. The two primary reported issues related to an auto accident include whiplash of the neck and generalized low back pain.
If you are in an accident and sustain an injury, it is important to see a medical professional immediately to address your injuries and get it all properly documented. Your doctor will then be able to determine the best possible treatment options for you.
Why Whiplash and Low Back Pain are Common with Auto Accident Injuries
Motor accidents always involve this type of scenario: a car going at one particular speed abruptly changes direction. This leads to a rather sudden deceleration of motion, causing trauma to the passengers’ bodies. The direction someone is hit, the posture they were sitting in, and other directional factors play a role in the symptoms and damage that will occur.
Essentially, the body must absorb the impact of these sudden changes. Do you know what part of the body is built for absorbing impact? The spine. When the impact is too much for the spine to manage, it results in injury.
The biggest concern for the spine is the overstretching it sustains. This leads to spinal misalignment that can wreak havoc on the body, leading to pain, swelling, headaches, changes in sensation, and over an overall decrease in quality of life.
