Every year over 2 million people are injured in auto accidents which demand immediate accident related treatment. Generally speaking, there are two types of car injuries: 1.) low speed auto injuries and 2.) high speed auto injuries. When an individual has an auto accident injury from a recent car wreck, it can be placed into two injury categories. Low-speed auto accidents often cause muscle injury strains/sprains and whiplash. These low speed, soft tissue auto accident injuries frequently lead to pain, muscle spasm, and can sometimes be associated with nausea and dizziness. High-speed auto accident injuries can cause more sever injuries that go along with neck pain, back pain, and headaches. These additional symptoms could include fractures, lacerations, anxiety, numbness, irritability, numbness, vomiting, concussion, and more.
For many individuals that are involved in an auto accident, pain is the primary symptom that results from the collision. Low back pain, neck pain, and shoulder pain are frequently described by individuals in auto accidents. As a result, many of these individuals are not properly treated due to lack of proper diagnosis. This is due to the fact that often the the source of pain is overlooked, and the trauma of the patient is underestimated. Most individuals are prescribed muscle relaxers and pain relievers after an auto accident, and the underlying cause of pain is ignored. Ignoring the muscular and structural injuries will potentially affect muscle strength, recovery, and can have long lasting effects on the individual’s health.
Individuals involved in an auto accident are encouraged not to underestimate their own injuries, and possibly compromise your health. An immediate, comprehensive exam following the auto accident should be performed by a licensed doctor trained in auto accident injury care. The doctors at Synergy Chiropractic of Houston focus on helping individuals to achieve pain relief by identifying the cause of pain that is present. After identifying the cause of pain and dysfunction, a customized care program is developed to ensure that the auto accident victim is able to recover as quickly as possible. Treatment programs focus on structural and muscular rehabilitation procedures such as gentle chiropractic care, dry needling (acupuncture), strength training, stretching programs, and other doctor assisted rehabilitation activities designed to relieve pain and improve performance.

What happens if you get in an auto accident injury?
Both minor and major car accidents produce a whipping action of the neck damaging the surrounding soft tissue structures (muscles and ligaments). Abnormal joint function is common after whiplash trauma and can lead to a variety of disorders, including the following:
- Muscle spasms/inflammation in the neck and/or back
- Jaw Problems
- Pinched Nerves
- Disc degeneration and arthritic changes
- Chronic pain syndromes
