Auto accident injuries are dangerous, scary and unfortunately quite common in the United States. Every year around 37,000 people die and over 2 million Americans are injured in car crashes, according to the Association for Safe International Road Travel (ASIRT). Many car crashes lead to severe injuries and chronic pain that can sometimes go unnoticed at first.
Soft tissue injuries like whiplash, back pain, shoulder pain, and other body pain can appear weeks after the initial accident. Many cases of chronic pain begin as relatively minor auto accident injuries that are left untreated.
That’s why in the first few days after your accident, it’s important to manage the pain and swelling of your injured tissues. This involves targeting the treatment to reduce your inflammation and decrease the intensity of your muscle spasms.
Rehabilitative treatments like the ones provided by Dynamic Health help minimize the long-term effects of injuries sustained in auto accidents.
Whiplash is one of the most common auto accident injuries. Whiplash injuries cause damage to your neck’s soft tissues, including your muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia.
Whiplash injuries are most commonly caused by rear-end automobile collisions. The “whipping” motion of your neck stretches your neck muscles and ligaments, resulting in micro-tears in the tissues that cause pain and swelling.
If you have recently sustained an injury as the result of an automotive accident, the pain specialists at Dynamic Health can help identify the source of your pain.
