Why Do You Feel Horrible after a Car Accident?

Written By Spring Chiropractic on January 6, 2020

auto injury treatmentIf trends continue, nearly 2,000 people in Clay County will suffer an auto injury in 2019. 

Florida is one of the worst states in the country for drivers. In 2018, over 254,000 people sustained injuries in a Florida car accident.

You’ve no doubt heard the expression, “I feel like I got hit by a truck” to describe widespread pain and discomfort. 

It’s normal to feel like garbage after a vehicle accident but unable to pin down a precise reason. Many injuries aren’t obvious to the untrained eye and can remain hidden – even for years!

An Auto Injury is No Laughing Matter

Some whiplash injuries, for example, are so small that an x-ray or MRI machine can’t pick them up. However, that doesn’t mean they aren’t there. 

Your spine’s vertebrae and attached muscles function as your body’s structure or foundation. When your foundation becomes damaged and doesn’t heal properly, this causes problems across your body from herniated discs, pinched nerves, spasms, and other issues.

  • Headaches 
  • Shoulder pain
  • Burning or numbness
  • Tingling or numbness in extremities
  • Restless leg syndrome (from a pinched nerve in your low back)
  • Sciatica (shooting electric-like pain that radiates down your leg)

Other serious symptoms of whiplash or a traumatic brain injury after a car accident may include

  • Blurred vision
  • Irritability or aggression
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Memory loss
  • Sleep disturbances
