Neck pain can be either mild or severe. In addition to the impact of a car accident causing neck pain, many times the normal activities of everyday life can trigger or cause neck pain.
When the head experiences sudden movement — front, back or side to side — damage to muscles, ligaments and connective tissues in the neck and upper back can lead to whiplash. Whiplash often presents following rear-end vehicle collisions.
Headache and Migraine
Post-traumatic headaches can begin after a car accident. Frequently, post-traumatic headaches are painful and quite debilitating. They can start immediately after a collision or within hours or even a few days.
Hip & Leg Pain from a Car Accident
While many of our patients experience neck, shoulder, and back pain after an accident, hip and leg pain are also quite common car accident injuries.
Knee & Leg Pain
Many people who experience knee pain following a car accident know that they can count on fast, natural pain relief by visiting our practice and seeing one of our Chiropractors.
