When two cars collide at upwards of even 30km/h there is tremendous force put on your body from the abrupt jerking motion. Often times your neck, back, arms, and legs are affected. Here is a list of the most commonly injured body parts as a result of car accidents.

Brain and head injuries:

One of the most common and debilitating injuries suffered by drivers and passengers is an acquired brain injury caused by the head being hit or hitting an object violently. Symptoms can be mild, moderate or severe, depending on the extent of damage to the brain and the area affected.

Neck injuries

Another common form of injury from a car accident is neck injury, which can occur in more mild forms such as whiplash and neck strain, to more serious injuries like cervical dislocation and disc injury.

Symptoms of a Neck Injury

Moments after an accident, you may not realize you have been injured if there are no immediate signs of a broken bone, cuts or scrapes, or loss of consciousness. However, many muscular, neck and spinal injuries are not seen until an MRI or CT scan is performed. You might experience some other symptoms that are a sign of neck injury, such as:

  • Headaches
  • Pain in the shoulder or upper arms
  • Reduced range of motion in the neck
  • Numbness or weakness around the neck
  • Muscle spasms

As some injuries may involve the spinal cord, a person can experience pain in the extremities, like the arms and hands, if their neck has been injured.

Car Accident Physiotherapy Treatment

You’re driving on your normal commute home from work, sitting in traffic. Suddenly, your body jerks forward and you hear the sound of crunching metal.  Before you know it, you are pulled over to the side of the road, exchanging insurance information with another driver. You were involved in a dreaded car accident.

Car Accidents in Toronto

A crash occurs every five minutes in Ontario. Furthermore, an injury occurs every 11 minutes from a crash.

These accidents can range from serious multi-vehicle collisions to parking lot fender benders. Regardless of the severity of the crash, injuries can occur from even the most minor collisions.

We recommend seeking medical attention immediately if you have obvious injuries. However, many people don’t realize that many car accident injuries  develop over time. Without proper treatment, injuries will worsen.

Signs You Need a Physiotherapist After an Accident

Here are a few key signs that you may need to see a physiotherapist after a car accident.

1) Stiffness: If you experience stiffness of the neck and upper back after accident, this may indicate whiplash.  Whiplash is a common injury for auto accidents. This occurs when the discs, joints, ligaments, cervical muscles, and nerves of the neck are injured from the sudden impact.

2) Poor range of motion: Experiencing problems with flexibility and range of motion can indicate soft tissue damage. If you’re struggling to perform every day activities, such as bending over to tie your shoes, it may be time for a visit to the clinic for physio or chiropractic treatment.

Spinal adjustments and manipulations to other parts of the body can realign the bones and joints to both reduce pain and restore range of motion. Our professional chiopractor may also recommend safe at-home exercises and stretches to improve flexibility.

3) Headaches: Whiplash and other neck injuries can lead to tension headaches. They can also be the result of stress following an accident. You don’t need to rely on over-the-counter pain medication to ease your headache. Chiropractic adjustments alleviate the stress the spine that support the neck to improve symptoms.

4) Numbness or weakness: Nerve injury or pressure on the spine can cause you to experience numbness or tingling in your arms, fingers, legs, or feet. This can signal a herniated disk, or can also be a symptom of whiplash. We use non-invasive manipulation techniques to relieve pressure on nerves.
