Diagnosis and treatment of painful auto accident injuries
The amount of physical damage that can be caused by a car accident can be significant. Even when traveling at low speeds the collision of 2 cars creates an enormous amount of force which can be transmitted to the occupants of the car. The spine can sustain serious damage in car accidents. Muscles and ligaments will stretch and tear due to the force sustained and spinal bones can be knocked out of alignment. This can lead to disc herniations in the neck and pinched nerve symptoms.
Neck pain, back pain ,whiplash, headaches and dizziness are some injuries associated with automobile accidents. Sometimes after an accident you may not feel pain right away. However as injured and stressed tissue bleeds and swells, stiffness, pain and lack of mobility will result. This can occur 48-72 hours after the accident. It is important to get evaluated after a car accident and our Merrick office can assess your injuries and start you on a course of treatment. Soft tissue injuries, such as ligament and muscular damage, can lead to chronic pain if left untreated.
