Here at East Lake Chiropractic and Medical Center in Saint Cloud, we can provide non-surgical treatment to put you back on the highway to health.
Common Auto Injury Issues
What can happen to your body in auto accident? There’s no single kind of auto accident injury. Common types of injuries you might sustain in a car accident include:
- Whiplash - This syndrome, the result of violent back-and-forth "whipping" of the head, damages the vertebral joints and neck tissue to cause neck pain, stiffness, headaches, "brain fog" and other distressing symptoms.
- Sciatica, herniated discs and low back pain - The lumbar spine can be thrown out of alignment, allowing discs or other structures to pinch sciatic nerve roots. This causes low back pain and as well as pain, tingling, numbness, or loss of function in the legs.
- Upper and middle back injuries - Extreme twisting motions can dislocate joints and tear muscles in the upper and middle back.
You might feel lucky to have no symptoms from your accident -- but this "happy ending" may not be as happy as you think. Injury symptoms can "hide" until the shock wears off, appearing only after you've allowed your injury to get significantly worse.
