Why Are Auto Accidents So Dangerous??

The spine is complex and delicate. The impact of a car accident an seriously inpact the spine causing neck and back injuries, straining the ligaments and muscles in the back, and the facet joints bear the brunt of the force. Trauma to the spine includes: whiplash, disc herniation, compression fractures, and spondylolisthesis.

Even a simple fender-bender at low-speed can cause damage to the back or neck. Feeling pain after an accident? Seek immediate medical attention. There's no way of knowing whether you've been seriously injured unless your examined by a medical professional. A simple muscle strain may heal on its own, however back or neck pain may suggest a more serious injury, requiring physical therapy and rehabilitation.

Symptoms to be aware of after an accident

Whiplash

Whiplash common after a rear-end crash, upon impact forces your head backward, then forward. Symptoms of whiplash may not appear immediately.

Pain areas: in the neck, arm, back, muscles, or shoulder

Spinal Fractures

Compression fractures are common in the thoracic and lumbar spine (middle / lower back) during a car accident. Symptoms include back pain, lost height, and a hunched-forward posture. Upon impact, the upper body may be thrown forward while the lower body is held in place by a seatbelt. This can pull the vertebrae apart. In some cases, spinal fractures can result in spinal cord injuries, as the broken vertebrae may move out of place.

Pain areas: in the middle back
Also common: bone fracture, hunched back, or loss of height
Consult a doctor for medical advice

Spondylolisthesis

Spondylolisithesis occurs when a vertebra shifts out of place due to a stress fracture in the bone. The displaced bone may press on the nerves or narrow the spinal canal, causing pain, numbness, or weakness in the buttock or leg, and difficulty walking. In extreme cases, it may cause loss of bladder or bowel control. However, some people do not experience symptoms until years later.

Can have no symptoms, but people may experience:
Pain areas: in the legs, thighs, and buttocks that worsens with standing or lower back
Also common: hamstring tightness, stiffness, or tenderness

Disc Herniation

Since the discs absorb the majority of the impact to the spine, it is possible for a disc to herniate during a car accident. A disc is herniated when its soft center pushes through a small crack in the discís exterior, irritating the surrounding nerves.

Pain areas: in the arm, back, foot, or leg
Muscular: muscle weakness, muscle spasms, or overactive reflexes
Sensory: leg numbness, pins and needles, or uncomfortable tingling and burning
Also common: foot numbness, hand numbness, or stiff neck
