When you are injured in a car accident, it is important to seek medical attention right away. Even if you do not think you are seriously injured, it is best to get checked out by a medical professional. Many injuries do not show symptoms until later, so it is important to be proactive and get evaluated. This will help ensure that you heal properly and can get back to your life as soon as possible.

Common Car Accident Injuries
Whiplash is an injury that occurs when the neck is forced to move quickly or in an awkward position, such as from an auto accident. Whiplash can cause a variety of symptoms, including neck pain and stiffness, headache, and nausea.
The back is made up of many different muscles, tendons, and ligaments. When any of these are injured, it is called a sprain or strain. Many times, people with back injuries don't realize how painful it is until they bend or twist the wrong way. Symptoms of back sprains/strains include pain in the lower back, upper back, neck, and shoulders.
Concussions are a type of traumatic brain injury that can occur in a car accident. A concussion is caused when there is trauma to the head and the brain moves rapidly inside of the skull. It can produce various symptoms, including headache, nausea, dizziness, confusion and forgetfulness, and trouble concentrating.
A car accident can cause knee injuries. Knee sprains are caused when the knee is forcefully moved out to the side, causing damage to ligaments on the inside of the knee. Knee pain, swelling, and stiffness are common symptoms.

Auto accident injuries can be serious. Some of these conditions, like whiplash or back pain, might require ongoing treatment. Chiropractic care can help to restore healthy function and mobility, improve pain levels, and speed up the recovery process so you can get back to your life.
