Auto Injuries Q&A

What are the most common auto injuries?

When you’re in a car accident, your head and neck are especially vulnerable. However, you can sustain a variety of injuries, including:

  • Whiplash
  • Concussion
  • Lower back injury
  • Broken bones
  • Injured knees
  • Internal injuries
  • Lower extremity fractures

You may develop widespread body pain, even if you don’t have a specific injury. In some cases, you may walk away from a car accident feeling fine, then develop symptoms down the road. 

What should I know about delayed symptoms?

Some of the most common auto injuries may not cause obvious symptoms for hours or days after your accident. You may have delayed symptoms due to:

Concussion

A severe concussion typically causes immediate symptoms, such as dizziness, memory loss, confusion, and a headache. However, the symptoms of a mild concussion could take days or months to appear.

Whiplash

A whiplash injury occurs when your neck goes through a rapid back-and-forth movement, potentially damaging vertebrae, nerves, discs, muscles, and ligaments. Symptoms such as neck pain and stiffness, headache, and tingling may be delayed for several days.

Lower back pain

Depending on the severity of your accident, it may take a little time to feel pain and stiffness in your back, or you may immediately have mild symptoms that get worse over time.

When should I get an evaluation for my auto injuries?

Even if you feel fine after an auto accident, it’s important to get a prompt examination. An evaluation identifies hidden trauma so you can start treatment to avoid complications.

Getting an evaluation as soon as possible also establishes a direct connection between your accident and injuries, which is essential if you plan to file an insurance claim or a personal injury lawsuit. 

As a certified independent chiropractic examiner, Dr. Kaliko and the team at Body of Beverly Hills Wellness produce timely professional reports detailing your injuries and the appropriate treatment.
