What Happens To My Body During An Auto Accident?

Your body wasn’t designed to deal with the forces that occur in a car accident. Even though modern cars have an array of safety features, the damage from an accident can range from small aches to life-changing injuries.

A Few Of The Most Common Injuries After An Auto Accident Include:


When your car is rear-ended, your neck gets thrown back from the impact and then rebounds by flexing forward. Whiplash commonly injures the tendons and ligaments in your neck and can cause severe pain, and it’s estimated to occur in over 25% of all auto accidents. The ligaments in the low back often get injured as well causing low back pain that could sometimes travel to the buttocks or legs.

Head Impact

Your head may collide with the headrest or even the steering wheel or airbag. Concussions, headaches, and other head injury symptoms can show up after an accident.

Shoulder and Knee Injuries

Bracing for an accident can often cause a shoulder injury. It’s also not uncommon for your knees to hit either the door or dashboard during an accident.

Research has shown that soft tissue injuries, like the ones suffered during an auto accident, usually recover best when care is initiated early during the recovery phase.

Delaying care could lead to poor tissue healing and chronic pain down the road. 

Chiropractic care is a safe and effective option to treat auto injuries like whiplash and back pain. Chiropractic care also has fewer side effects and risks when compared to drugs or surgeries.
