Auto Accident Injuries

Spinal Cord Injuries

The spinal cord is responsible for carrying signals from the brain to the rest of the body, so when it's injured, it can cause a loss of sensation or paralysis. Spinal cord injuries require prompt and specialized treatment, so getting to a hospital as soon as possible is important.

Back Injuries

Back injuries are some of the most common car personal injuries and they can range from mild to severe. Back pain is especially common in sports injuries and work injuries. This can cause strain on the neck and back muscles, as well as damage to the spine itself. Back injuries can often be difficult to diagnose and treat, so it's best to see a chiropractor like Dr. Woods, who specializes in treating these types of injuries.

Whiplash

Whiplash is a neck injury caused by the sudden jerking of the head, and it's very common in car accidents. The symptoms of whiplash can be both physical and psychological, and they may not show up immediately. It's important to see a chiropractor or another medical doctor for an evaluation as soon as possible after an accident, even if you don't feel any pain. A professional chiropractor can help prevent long-term damage and pain.

Herniated Discs 

A herniated disc occurs when the soft, spongy material between your vertebrae is forced out of place. This can happen as a result of the force of the impact in a car accident. Herniated discs can cause pain, numbness, and weakness in the affected area. It’s also quite common in work injuries and sports injuries from contact sports.
