You were in a Motor Vehicle Accident, now what?

There are many layers to injury that don’t always show up right away. Arthritis, accelerated degeneration and other forms of damage can occur if the injury is not fixed and stabilized. The longer your spine stays out of alignment, the longer it can take to recover.

The fast and abrupt forces involved in a collision, even one as slow as 6 km/h, causes the head to move back and forth very quickly. This can cause damage to ligaments, muscles and tendons. The area where the head meets the neck is the weakest region of the human spine. Injury in this very complex area can buckle it causing whiplash.

The tissues in the neck include muscle, ligaments, blood vessels, and nerves. These tissues, along with the joints and discs of the upper cervical spine, can be affected by a car accident. Pain can spread to the shoulders, arms and hands, and into the head. Injuries to the joints in the neck and surrounding soft tissue can cause headaches, migraines or neck pain. By treating this delicate area, it can help alleviate pain.

The forces in a car accident can cause your body to compress and stretch in many ways and back pain is a common symptom of this. Due to the seatbelt holding your lower back, upper back, and neck in place, the whip-like action often cause these areas to hurt.

There are many potential causes of dizziness, but in a car accident, we see muscle spasms from whiplash as a culprit. When signals, that the eyes and neck send to the brain, are different than what is transmitted to the inner ear, dizziness can occur.

TMJ, also known as temporomandibular joint pain, can occur during a whiplash injury due to the connections the jaw has with the altered position of the head. You can have pain when chewing, as well as a cracking and popping in the joint. Headaches often accompany this disorder.
