Auto Accident Injuries and Your Spine: Is it Serious?

auto-accident-neck-pain-sq-400Most of us have been involved in at least a minor fender bender on the road. Though the damage to your car after an accident can be easy to spot, your injuries aren’t always so obvious. Even if you feel fine, it’s possible that the effects of a muscle strain or worse has yet to set in.

Here’s what can happen to your body:

  • Whiplash: Perhaps the most common injury associated with an accident, whiplash affects your body as the force of a collision whips your head back and then forward sharply.
  • Disc Herniation: In a more severe accident, it’s possible for a disc to become weakened or bulged.
  • Pinched Nerve: After an accident, a pinched nerve can result due to inflammation in the body. This could take anywhere from days to months to develop.

The unseen damage from the trauma of a car accident can often show up months, even years later. Encourage those you love to call us for a non-obligation evaluation.
