Auto accidents can cause many types of injuries. Whiplash is the most commonly known. However, there can be many more. Low back, mid back, upper back, wrist, elbow, shoulder, hip, knee and even foot and ankle injuries are all common as well. The extent of injuries are generally sprain/strain injuries to the muscles and ligaments that result in pain and joint dysfunction. These injuries can cause neck pain, back pain, headaches, arm pain/numbness, and/or leg pain/numbness. Left untreated these conditions frequently turn into chronic pain syndromes that can become permanent. Because symptoms may not show up right away, you may not realize you are injured. Usually, auto accident victims do not reach out for treatment because they don't feel the symptoms immediately or feel they are minor and will go away on their own. However, most research regarding injuries sustained in auto accidents shows that the prognosis of a full recovery is low and that the prognosis of rear end collisions, causing whiplash are the worst.
