Spinal Complications Resulting from Auto Injuries

Automobile accidents are one of the principal causes of spine complications and are responsible for more than 40 percent of spinal injuries every year, according to the Mayo Clinic. While the best possible precautions can be taken to avoid tissue damage or injury in the case of an auto collision, car accidents can be unpredictable and may not always be prevented, but knowing the right information can help an individual recognize a possible injury as well as be aware of the next steps to take for recovery.

 The spine is a complex structure consisting of bone, muscle, tendons, ligaments, blood vessels and nerves. Although its capable of supporting the whole weight of your body in order to promote a proper balance, the spine can also be considered to be a delicate structure. The spine is not built to withstand the impact of a car accident and unfortunately, neck and back injuries are common during car accidents. The force of the impact causes strain on the ligaments and muscles in the back, and the facet joints endure the majority of the brunt from the collision. This can lead to several injuries including, whiplash, disc herniation, compression fractures, and spondylolisthesis.

Dr. Alex Jimenez D.C.,C.C.S.T’s insight:

After being involved in an automobile accident, it can be difficult to determine the presence of neck or back pain as a simple muscle strain or a more serious injury. It’s important to seek immediate medical attention to properly diagnose any possible spinal damage. A doctor of chiropractic, or DC, can diagnose an individual for the underlying cause of pain and other symptoms as some symptoms may suggest that medical help is needed. For more information, please feel free to ask Dr. Jimenez or contact us at (915) 850-0900.
