It is not an uncommon occurrence for a car accident to lead to musculoskeletal injury or residual pain. Our team at Dynamic Healthcare Center helps people who have been through a car accident to relieve their pain while recovering from their unfortunate injuries.
An auto accident can result in a number of injuries and conditions including:
- Seat belt abrasion and tissue damage
- Herniated or bulging discs
One of the most common occurrences on the body after an auto accident is whiplash. Whiplash is when the muscles and ligaments of the neck develop small tears. This condition generally becomes prevalent when the head and neck are jolted in a forward or backward motion due to an accident.
The symptoms of whiplash include:
- Neck, back, and shoulder pain
- Stiff muscles
- Limited range of motion
Many people afflicted with whiplash caused from an accident don’t even know that they have it at first. The earliest symptoms of whiplash often take time to make themselves apparent, with other warning signs being so subtle that sufferers don’t even know that they are affected.
