Auto accidents are such a pain. When you’ve been in a fender bender, you have a lot to deal with like insurance and repairing your vehicle or finding a new one. Sometimes, auto accidents are a literal pain too. Drivers can experience many different types of injuries related to an auto accident.

Common injuries caused by auto accidents include:

  • Neck injuries — Car accidents are notorious for causing whiplash. Other possible neck injuries may include herniated discs, strains and sprains.
  • Spine injuries — Auto accidents may damage your spinal cord, which can result in conditions like sciatica.
  • Bone injuries — Impact from an auto accident may cause broken bones.
  • Muscle injuries — Impact can also cause strains and sprains to your soft tissue, which includes your muscles, ligaments and tendons.

Additionally, auto accidents can cause head injuries or burns that require medical assistance for treatment.

When you’ve been hurt in an automobile accident, you should visit a physical therapist for rehabilitative treatment as part of your recovery.
