The Five Most Common Types of Auto Accident Injuries
There are five common injuries that many patients report after an auto accident. These are as follows:
Lack of sensation — The sciatic nerve, which is located between the spine and the legs, may pinch because of the increased pressure your body experienced during the accident. If your lack of feeling is exclusive to the legs, buttocks, and feet, it’s likely you have sciatica.
Neck aches — The most common cause of neck pain after an accident is whiplash. With this, your neck and shoulder muscles stretch unnaturally due to the violent impact of the crash. Whiplash and other neck pain could become chronic if left untreated.
Migraines and tension headaches —Tension headaches and migraines, especially if you never got these before, can be concerning. You may have a head injury or other damage that is causing said headaches.
Pins and needles — Pins and needles are another sign of sciatica. If you’re experiencing these in conjunction with a lack of feeling in the legs, see a medical professional as soon as possible.
Mid-back and lower back pain — Herniated or degenerative discs are likely after an accident. Your spine may be misaligned due to the impact. You may also notice pain in the arms and legs.
