Car Accident Injuries
Some of the most common injuries that victims of car accidents experience, either directly after the crash or in the following months include:
- Soft Tissue Injuries
- Scrapes, Cuts, and Contusions
- Head Trauma and Injuries
- Injuries to the Chest
- Broken Limbs
- Spinal Column Injuries
- Back and Neck Damage (Whiplash)
When To See An Auto Injury Doctor
There are certain car accident injuries that may not appear for several hours or days after the accident. This is often caused by adrenaline and other endorphins, which can block pain and increase your energy level as a method of powering through the emergency, thus masking your injuries.
Hidden car accident injuries can be soft tissue damage or something even more serious. The only way to know for sure is to visit an auto injury doctor as soon as possible after your accident.
Can Acupuncture Help After an Accident?
Acupuncture is a holistic, medicine-free approach to reducing, treating, and eliminating pain. The pain associated with neck and back injuries after a car accident or another type of accident involving neck trauma is often the result of inflamed tissue. Acupuncture reduces inflammation by improving blood flow, increasing circulation, and releasing endorphins, which are natural painkillers associated with the neuroendocrine system.
