The Most Common Car Accident Injuries

Posted by Advanced Injury Care Clinic on May 30, 2019 12:25:04 PM

Just about 3 million people are injured in car crashes every year.

And, if you have to commute to work every day, I bet you aren't surprised because you probably feel like you get stuck behind a car accident just about every day.

Most of the time, people can just pull off to the side of the road and wait for the police to arrive. Their injuries are no worse than a stubbed toe or a sprained ankle you'd get playing basketball.

They heal relatively quickly and don't require much medical intervention if they require any at all.

But other accidents can be much worse, even life-threatening. These are the accidents that leave you stranded on the interstate for hours trying to get to or from work.

The injuries people sustain in car accidents vary depending on numerous factors, including seat belt use, area of impact, speed, and whether or not the airbags deployed upon impact.

The injuries can also be broken down into two broad categories; impact injuries and penetrating injuries.

Impact injuries are caused when part of a person's body is slammed against the interior of the car upon impact.

Penetrating injuries are typically cuts and scrapes caused by glass or loose objects flying around inside of the car.

Having a well-balanced diet is also important. Here are anti-inflammatory foods you should include in your diet.

Chiropractic care, while infamous for treating back pain, can help with many other symptoms with the same effectiveness.
