Auto Injuries Q & A

Should I get an exam after a car crash?

After a motor vehicle accident, you may not have any noticeable cuts or bruises and you may not even feel any pain. However, when you’re in a potentially life-threatening situation like an auto accident, your body releases adrenaline, which numbs pain sensations. Once the adrenaline and the shock wear off, you might start to notice pain in your neck, shoulders, back, or other areas.

Even if you only had a minor fender bender, getting a consultation and examination at Lifestyle Rejuvenation Medical Group as soon as possible ensures that you get the care you need. Low-impact accidents can still cause serious injuries to your muscles, tendons, ligaments, and bones that may not be apparent for some time. Catching minor injuries early ensures that you don’t develop complications.

What if my auto injuries have already healed?

If you were in a major accident, your doctors treated your injuries. However, the impact could have caused subluxations in your spine or minor injuries to your muscles, tendons, and ligaments that could cause complications later. Once you’ve recovered from your severe injuries, you could benefit from an evaluation by the team at Lifestyle Rejuvenation Medical Group to ensure that your spine is aligned and that your body is in the relaxed, self-healing state known as homeostasis.

What kinds of symptoms do auto injuries cause?

After your accident, you might experience a range of symptoms that you might not even relate to the car crash. Common symptoms of auto injuries include:

  • Trouble sleeping
  • Back pain
  • Neck pain (whiplash)
  • Headaches and head pain
  • Joint pain
  • Unexplained fatigue
  • Tingling in hands or feet
  • Weak or numb hands or feet

You might also notice that you’re more confused or irritable than usual. Some women, men, and children who were in bad car crashes develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Get medical attention right away if you’re having cognitive difficulties, such as confusion or memory loss.
