If you were in a car accident and someone crashed into your car, you may have felt okay initially; however, a day later, you may have felt unusual pain getting out of bed. That is when you should consult with Holistic Health Clinic in Beaverton, Oregon. When you are in a car accident of any type, you are likely to suffer new and unusual impacts on your functional health and wellness.
Even a Minor Car Accident Can Impact Wellness
There are physical forces at play during a car crash that propel your body at a rapid pace, causing strain on tissues like your ligaments, tendons, and muscles which impacts your neck, shoulders, back, and your body as a whole.
Also consider what is happening to your brain/nervous system in the event of a car crash. Your brain is not in your skull in a tight, locked-in position. Rather, there’s room for it to move a bit. When you are in a car accident, the rapid movement of the car can cause your brain to smash into the sides of your skull, or to be twisted in torsional forces causing possible damage to the nervous system in the form of axonal or dendritic damage to nerves resulting in numerous complications.
Common Injuries Brought on by Car Accidents
Some of the most impactful injuries caused by car accidents that go beyond the most obvious broken bones and lacerations include the following:
- Spinal column damage
