Auto Injury Recovery

Did you know that even low speed collisions can lead to long term spinal damage if appropriate treatment is not initiated immediately?

Cervical Spine Research on Car Accidents

Car Accidents and InjuriesAccording to the Spine Research Institute of San Diego, collisions resulting in whiplash can accelerate the head with over 10 times the force of gravity.  Victims may initially have few if any complaints as these injuries frequently take up to 48 hours to manifest.  In a car accident, the cervical spine is subjected to shearing and bending forces that can destabilize the spine and lead to long term degenerative spinal conditions unless professional diagnostic care and a thoughtful treatment plan is sought early.

Symptoms that can result from car accidents include:

  • Whiplash
  • Severe headaches
  • Pain in shoulder, neck and rib
  • Pain in back, leg, or sciatic
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Pain in knee and ankle
  • Pain in elbow and wrist
