Your Solution For Alleviating Pain After A Redding Car Accident

If you’ve been in a car accident, no matter how minor, get yourself evaluated by a doctor immediately!

Car accidents can wreak havoc on your musculoskeletal alignment. Even a minor tweak can cause extensive pain, a pain that often intensifies with time. If you’ve been in an automobile accident, DO NOT wait to seek medical attention!

Common Back and Neck Injuries Resulting From Car Accidents

Your back and neck tend to receive the brunt of any damage sustained during a car accident. Common injuries include:

  • Whiplash – Whiplash is one of the most common of all car accident injuries, with over one million incidents each year. Although it can describe a large  range of neck injuries, it is typically used to describe hyperflexion and hyperextension injuries. Early care is highly recommended to prevent development or worsening of Whiplash Syndrome.  Immediately after an injury the body begins to lay down scar tissue.  The longer it takes to get the help you need, the worse it gets!
  • Disc Injuries – A herniated disc, also referred to as a ruptured or slipped disc, is one of the most common back injuries among car accident victims. Damaged discs may be unable to allow proper movement of the spinal vertebrae or might pinch surrounding nerves, resulting in severe pain and body malfunction.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries – The spine is the anchor point of your entire body. In addition to serving as the center point of your musculoskeletal system, it also houses the CNS’ primary nerve bundle. If these nerves are damaged, it can hinder the brain’s ability to communicate with the body, weakening muscles and organs–potentially to the extent of paralysis.
  • Compression Fractures – For older adults especially, a car accident can result in compression fractures within the spine. Compression fractures are essentially small cracks within the vertebrae that can result in deformation or even a full spinal collapse.

As you may have noticed, these common neck and back injuries aren’t always immediately apparent. Many of them entail seemingly minor damage initially, but given time, the damage can increase to the point of extreme debilitation.

Catching injuries early after a car accident can save you from tremendous pain down the road.

Of course, you may need to be checked out at the hospital after an accident in case of broken limbs or internal bleeding, etc, but unfortunately, you might not receive the personalized attention you need and deserve. General-care practitioners are extremely over-booked nowadays, and you are probably looking at a 15 minute appointment –  not nearly enough time to get a solid read on your body’s condition, and may not have the expertise of a specialist whose only focus is on the spine.

But don’t worry, there is a positive alternative to the cold white walls of your public hospital.
