Auto Accident Injury Recovery

Common Injuries that Occur After a Car Accident

You are stopped at a light when you are suddenly rear-ended by another car. At first, you may not feel any pain and assume that all is well. Do not be surprised if you start experiencing symptoms a few hours or even days after the accident. Oftentimes, pain is masked by the surge of adrenaline that can course through your body after being involved in a wreck. That is why we recommend visiting Fox Chiropractic P.S. in Seattle as soon as possible after being involved in an accident.

Do Not Assume a Low-Speed Crash Will Result in Minor Injuries

Even if you have been involved in what seems like a minor car accident, you can still suffer a painful personal injury, including the following:


Studies have shown that people can get whiplash even if their vehicles were traveling at speeds as low as five to ten miles an hour. This injury, which can also be called a neck sprain or strain, is caused when a person's head and neck move rapidly back and forth. Many factors can determine whether you will suffer whiplash, including whether you were wearing a seat belt or even your age.

Back Injuries

After a minor car accident, it is not unusual to experience back pain or even a herniated disc. It is important to seek care from a chiropractor for your back pain because if left untreated, these types of injuries can leave you with long-term complications.

Chest Pain

Chest pain is another common auto accident injury. During an accident, your seat belt may tighten suddenly around your chest, or a deploying airbag could strike your upper torso with great force. A chiropractor can check you over and ensure that you receive the proper alignment techniques to help you recover from your chest pain.
