Car Accident Injuries Q & A

Reid Physicians Group

What injuries are common after a car accident?

A car accident can cause minor or serious injuries. For the most part, people involved in a car accident walk away with minor bumps and bruises, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have a more serious injury. It can sometimes take weeks for you to feel pain as a result of an injury suffered in a car accident.

Common injuries caused by car accidents include:

  • Whiplash
  • Mid or low back muscle sprains
  • Arm and leg sprains
  • Head injury

If you experience whiplash during your car accident, you may feel pain and stiffness in your neck and shoulders. It can also cause tingling down your arms and into your fingers.

When should I seek treatment for my injuries?

If you’re experiencing pain and it’s affecting your quality of life, the integrative medicine team at Reid Physicians Group can help.

They recommend you come in for an evaluation within 14 days of your accident  if you have:

  • Neck or back pain
  • Headaches or migraines
  • Shoulder pain
  • Knee or joint pain
  • Numbness or Tingling sensation
  • Muscle weakness or pain
  • Ruptured/herniated disc
  • Bulging disc
