No one plans to be involved in an auto accident, and even fewer wish to suffer an injury because of it. Unfortunately, even a small accident can result in injury and cause trauma to your musculoskeletal system. The key to the best recovery is to reach out as soon as one can after an accident so a skilled specialist, like our Atlanta orthopedic doctors, can provide a proper evaluation of your injury.
Damage Exists Beneath The Surface
Oftentimes, injury has occurred and you may not even be aware. When an accident occurs, even at slow speeds, whiplash which is the fast forward and backward motion of your body can cause trauma to your neck and back as well as injury to the muscles and connective tissues.
- Orthopedic injuries resulting from accident:
- Broken bones
- Muscle strains/ ruptures
- Ligament strains
Don’t wait for symptoms to surface if you have been in an accident as the above injuries could become debilitating and result in chronic pain if left untreated. Symptoms of orthopedic injuries:
- Limited range of motion
- Headaches (caused by misaligned spine)
