Auto Injuries Q & A

What are common car accident injuries?

There are many ways you can get injured in a car accident. Dr. Gordon, DC, and the team at Corner Canyon Pain and Medicine treat a wide range of auto accident injuries, including:

  • Whiplash
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Muscle, tendon, or ligament injuries

Whiplash is the most common auto accident injury. This injury occurs when your head snaps back and forth quickly like the motion of a whip. Whiplash usually occurs when you’ve been rear-ended.

How do I know if I have whiplash?

You may have whiplash if you experience the following signs and symptoms after a car accident:

  • Neck pain and stiffness
  • Pain that worsens with movement
  • Loss of range of motion in the neck
  • Headaches, especially at the base of the skull
  • Numbness or tingling in the arms
  • Pain or tenderness in the shoulder, upper back, or arms
  • Dizziness and fatigue

Most of the time (but not always), whiplash symptoms develop within 24 hours after the accident. 

When should I seek medical care after a car accident?

Even if your car accident injury isn’t life-threatening, it’s important to get prompt treatment. You should call Corner Canyon Pain and Medicine as soon as you notice pain or other symptoms of a car accident injury. 

Timely treatment not only gets you on track to recovery much faster, but it also helps ensure you receive insurance benefits to cover your medical expenses if the accident wasn’t your fault. If you need to hire an attorney or have questions about the next steps to take in filing a claim, the team at Corner Canyon Pain and Medicine are there to help you.

How are whiplash and other car accident injuries treated?

First, your provider at Corner Canyon Pain and Medicine carefully reviews your symptoms and medical history and performs a physical exam. They ask you to describe how the injury occurred and when the accident happened. 

Then, they develop a personalized, integrative treatment plan based on your specific condition. At Corner Canyon Pain and Medicine, you can see a nurse practitioner, chiropractor, and physical therapist all under the same roof.
