Symptoms After an Auto Accident
Headaches and Migraines are common after an auto accident. When your head is involuntarily forced from a sudden impact, the muscles surrounding the head and neck strain to keep balance. During this process, a forceful stretch tightens muscles and builds the neck into a ‘brick-like’ feeling, applying pressure against the head and neck.
More serious injuries such as, shoulder, arm, back, leg and foot pain may appear minor at first, but as the body continues to heal, the pain’s true effects occur. Muscles gradually heal, but after a jarring impact to our skeletal systems may derail the muscles from their problem alignment. Popped ribs and rotated pelvis bones are two great examples where muscles have impact on prolonged pain. During the weeks following your accident you may experience tightness, dull or even sharp pain in these effected areas. Without addressing these issues you may live with constant pain your entire life. Herniated or disc bulges are often common in the spine, depending on how severe the impact from the accident was. Surgery is normally considered the first solution, but with proper treatment one could forego the high expense of modern surgery.
