Car Accident Injuries
Treatments for Car Accident Injuries near San Diego
Car accidents, even minor 5 mph fender benders, can subject your body to impact forces that can lead to injuries both minor and severe. In many cases, right after the moment of impact, your adrenalin level may surge or you may enter a level of shock that temporarily blocks pain signals from being sent to the brain. You may have seen someone with a serious wound who was not aware of it since they felt no pain.
Not all injuries are noticeable right away; some may take days or weeks to appear. Some injuries can develop over time as a result of trauma to any of your muscles, ligaments, tendons, spine or joints that may have caused them to shift out of place or scar tissue to develop. If not treated appropriately or right away, injuries can lead to neck and should pain or stiffness, back pain, headaches, dizziness, a numbing feeling in your arms and fingers and, in time, could lead to arthritis or other debilitating conditions.
The severity of an auto accident has no direct correlation with the severity of any injury. Even if you don’t feel any pain or discomfort right away, it doesn’t mean that an injury has not occurred. A visit to a chiropractor in San Diego is a preemptive measure that may reduce the long-term impact of an injury resulting from a car crash. Let us evaluate your condition to determine if there are any problems and whether treatment will be necessary. We want to help you avoid the possible later conditions from any San Diego car accident injuries.
The sudden forceful jolt to the body as a result of the impact during a car crash can lead to any of the following:
- Neck injury
- Back injury
- Pinched nerves
- Ligament damage
- Muscle tears
- Muscle spasms
- Spinal misalignment
- Ringing in the ears
- Shoulder pain
- Arm pain or tingling

It’s not uncommon for stress to develop during the aftermath of the accident while dealing with insurance companies, auto repair facilities, doctors, attorneys, etc. The addition of stress will sometimes compound the severity of the injury as a result of how the body reacts to it.
