Auto Accidents Q & A

Cactus Medical Center

What are some common injuries related to auto accidents?

An auto accident causes your adrenaline to spike, often numbing the pain of potential injuries. Often, you don’t realize you’re injured until the shock of the experience has dissipated. Sometimes, your injury doesn’t present itself until weeks later.

However, auto accidents can damage your spine in many different ways. You can experience symptoms such as neck and back pain or ongoing headaches.

What is whiplash?

Whiplash is one of the most common neck injuries, often resulting from an auto accident. It occurs when your neck suddenly moves forward and backward or from side to side.

Whiplash can result in minor back injuries, muscle injuries, ligament problems and disc damage. Other symptoms of whiplash can include:

  • Blurred vision
  • Headaches
  • Shoulder pain
  • Dizziness
  • Reduced range-of-motion
  • Arm pain
  • Muscle spasms
  • Trouble Sleeping

Sometimes you can experience the symptoms of whiplash right away, other times you may think you’re just “stiff” or “sore” following your accident. However, even though your symptoms may not feel severe or present themselves right away, serious injuries could still arise from your accident.

Why seek the care of physical medicine specialists following your accident?

The healthcare team at Cactus Medical Center offers integrated treatment options for your body as a whole, free of the side effects related to pain medications or invasive surgery.
