Many people mistakenly believe that physicians and surgeons are the only healthcare specialists with the skills to assist those injured in a car accident. If you live or work in the greater Lawrence, KS vicinity, Dr. Michael Stuart of Stuart Chiropractic Health Center offers noninvasive chiropractic care options to individuals who now face musculoskeletal problems caused by an automobile accident.
Common Auto Accident Injuries
Potential injuries resulting from being involved in a car accident may range from cuts and bruises to severe injuries that reach life-threatening levels. The most common auto accident injuries include injuries and damage to the musculoskeletal system.
The injuries that may result from a car accident vary widely and include the following -
- Neck/Back Pain
- Migraine/Tension Headaches
- Shoulder/Arm/Upper Back Discomfort
- Soft tissue injuries and contusions
- Joint-related injuries like misalignments or dislocations
Injuries can be mild or quite severe, depending, in part, on -
- The speed and number of vehicles involved in the crash
- The collision type
- The road conditions at the time of the accident
- The safety features in the car
- The position of the victim at the time of the crash
Automobile injuries can be tricky because certain types of injuries take time to show up – sometimes days or even weeks to become evident. This is because a car collision can cause your adrenaline level to spike – with the ability to overtake or mask pain caused by an injury caused by the motor vehicle crash. This is the main reason why it is so important to seek medical assistance after a car collision – even if you are apparently asymptomatic after a motor vehicle accident.
