What are the physical repercussions of car accidents?

The areas most commonly injured in car accidents are the head, neck, spine, and knees. Rear-end collisions — even minor fender benders and low-speed collisions — often result in whiplash due to the impact on your body. Rollovers are a frequent cause of spinal injuries

Other common auto injuries that our skilled providers see frequently include:

Sometimes back pain that results from a car accident can be nerve related. Nerve pain is often the result of compression, which occurs when bones in the spine are pushed together and damage the discs or cartilage.
