Some of The Most Common Truck Accident Injuries are Treatable with Chiropractic Care
Back and Spinal Cord Injuries:
Back pain is common among those who have been involved in a truck accident. A major concern with back pain is the spinal cord. Damage to the spinal cord could be very serious. Paralysis has even been known to occur due to severe back and spinal injuries.
A less severe but equally painful injury is chronic back pain. Chronic pain is probably the most common symptom to truck accident victims who injured their back. The lower back is usually the source of the pain and it can be caused by a strain, twist, or herniated disc. In addition to chronic pain, these injuries also have the potential to limit mobility and require surgery if left untreated for a long period of time.
The most common neck injury sustained by truck accident victims is whiplash, or cervical acceleration/deceleration Syndrome.
Whiplash is a serious injury and if you do not seek immediate treatment, it can cause unbearable chronic pain.
Whiplash is caused upon impact with another vehicle, such as a semi-truck. The quick jerking motion of the head is caused by the acceleration and then rapid deceleration of the neck forward and backward, causing a strain on the muscles around the spine. In addition to pain, symptoms of whiplash can also include headaches and dizziness.
