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.

Our expert providers have solutions for most causes of back pain after an auto accident.
