Auto Accident Q & A

What types of injuries occur due to car accidents?

Your body contains a complex network of ligaments, tendons, muscles, bones, and organs. The sudden impact of an auto accident can cause significant damage to this system, even when the accident seems minor.

Car accidents seriously injure around 4.5 million people every year. If you’ve had an auto accident, it’s important to schedule a checkup as soon as possible to look for signs of injury. Dr. Soccio has extensive experience treating a wide range of auto accident injuries, including:

  • Whiplash
  • Soft tissue damage
  • Pain in the back, neck, or shoulders
  • Knee trauma
  • Broken bones
  • Herniated discs

Dr. Soccio also offers therapies and pain management solutions for spinal cord injuries.

What are the symptoms of an auto accident injury?

When you’ve been in a car accident, you may not have symptoms of an injury immediately. In some cases, they can take hours or days before they develop.

Some common signs of an auto accident injury include:

  • Headaches or dizziness
  • Neck strain
  • Pain or stiffness in your back or body
  • Numbness in your hands or arms

You might also develop anxiety symptoms or panic attacks after being in a car accident. When you ignore an auto accident injury, acute pain can turn into a chronic condition.

How are auto accident injuries treated?

Common treatments for car accident injuries include:

  • Anti-inflammatory or pain-relieving medications
  • Trigger point injections
  • Alternative therapies like massage or chiropractic care
  • Physical rehabilitation
  • Regenerative medicine treatments
