Car accidents Cause Many Types of Injury
Car accidents happen every single day. Selecting Las Vegas Chiropractors in a personal injury matter is a very important decision. The impact of two cars exerts thousands of pounds of force and consequently much of that force is transmitted to necks and spines. Circumstances of the injuries differ widely and speed is always critical. Passenger locations and number of occupants also makes a difference. Seat belts too, determine the degree of injury and the Las Vegas chiropractors who make up our auto accident injury treatment team look for the soft tissue damage that belts can sometimes cause.
Frequently during car accidents, there are injuries to the cervical spine because of the weight of the head snapping forward and back. Thus the term: whiplash. If the head strikes something in the vehicle during a Las Vegas auto accident, passengers might sustain additional injuries called post-concussion syndrome. Some symptoms of injury might show up immediately but others may not appear for weeks or months. Emergency room treatment might not fully reveal these injuries.
Las Vegas chiropractors use a variety of methods to diagnose and treat symptoms related to car accidents.
Some common symptoms of whiplash and post-concussion Syndrome are:
• Neck pain and restriction of movement.
• Headache that won’t go away.
• Tiredness and feelings of nervousness.
• Trouble with balance, equilibrium.
• Ringing in the ears.
• Inability to sleep and excessive sweating.
• Numbness in extremities.
• Inability to concentrate or memory loss.
When the term whiplash is used in describing injury from car accidents it often generates exaggerated feelings of fear that include psychological consequences. Injuries of this type are always treatable and most often very successfully. That’s why it is important that the Las Vegas auto accident victim seek experienced chiropractors when such injury is present or suspected. Pain is, of course, the major symptom in this type of injury. The result is hypertension and muscle pain sets up a vicious cycle with the nerves of the spinal cord, this increases muscle tension, which increases pain and further tension. Skeletal and muscular injuries heal quickly if treatment is started early.
