Whether your auto accident was a low speed or high-speed collision the forces exerted on your body are massive. But, because it happens so fast you might not even realize the damage you sustained. During an auto accident your spine is rapidly “whipped” forward and backwards. This causes the ligaments (little bands that hold your bones together) to get stretched, the muscles to tear, cartilage to be stressed and nerves to get stretched. These are the main reasons you experience pain after an accident and the causes of common car accident injuries including:
- Disc Herniations
- Joint Pain
Even more important is the health of your brain! Auto accidents can cause your brain to “rattle” around inside your skull. This is what we commonly call a concussion. Its symptoms are varied but include:
- Memory loss
- Clouded or muddled thinking
- Depression or anxiety
- Frustration or irritability
Any of these symptoms make it even more urgent that you seek care right away. Remember, because it takes 4-6 weeks for nerves to experience the full damage from an accident, you might know how bad the injuries are right after your auto accident.
