We see a lot of back injuries that have to do with automobile accidents. Many of these are totally unavoidable. If you live in a large city like, say, New York, or Los Angeles, you are going to come into contact with some of the riskiest drivers in the world.
Drive Safe for Yourself and For Others
At Vital Energy Wellness & Chiropractic Center Inc., we believe as much in preventive medicine as we do prescriptive. If we can educate our patient base and readership not to engage in certain risk factors, we might be able to help avoid an accident and a trip to your friendly neighborhood chiropractor or worse.
Common Automobile-Related Injuries to the Back
One of the more common auto accident injuries is the herniated disk. Of course, this is going to be less severe than spinal damage, and especially any sort of head or brain injury, but can still cause problems and inhibit your range of motion and ability to work. This can happen from following too closely, which may cause you to jam on your brakes suddenly and be hit from behind. If you change lanes suddenly, there's a good chance you can make contact, which will put your body in jeopardy.
Patients might experience numbness or tingling sensations after an auto accident. They can also experience muscle weakness, and arm or leg pain. Whiplash is the most common injury associated with your back when it comes to car accidents.
