Auto Injuries Q & A

What are the Most Common Injuries Following an Auto Accident?

Automobile accidents can cause a wide range of trauma and pain that can affect the whole body. While every person who experiences a car accident has a unique experience of injury and recovery, some injuries are more serious and require more care than others.

Whiplash is the most common injury associated with auto accidents, although there are plenty of other injuries you might sustain that may affect your back, knees, and shoulders.

Some people experience headaches or migraines, while others may just have some bruising and swelling.

What are Common Symptoms of Auto Accident Injuries?

After an auto accident, patients might experience pain, including:

  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Headaches
  • Blurry vision
  • Dizziness
  • Irritability
  • Memory issues
  • Sleep disturbances

It is possible for there to be a delay between the accident and the presence of symptoms. It is important to seek medical attention right away as effective care from a provider like Dr. Gehnrich can help to start the healing process before you even begin to experience pain. Prompt treatment can sometimes even prevent your injuries from causing you undue pain, missing work or school, or suffering long-term mobility issues.

What is Whiplash?

Whiplash is an injury caused by the violent forward and backward jerking of the neck caused by a rear impact accident that causes damage to the soft tissues and nerves in the neck.

While whiplash is the most common injury associated with car accidents, it can also be caused by other impact accidents during sports or slipping and falling.

Whiplash causes pain in the neck and upper back and you may experience some weakness or tingling in your arms due to the compression of nerves in your neck.
