Most Common Pain from Car Accident Injuries

Most Common Pain from Car Accident Injuries

At Pain Control Associates, LLC, we know how scary and disruptive a car accident may be. We also know that when a car accident occurs, you may experience an injury that leads to significant amounts of pain. Sometimes, this pain doesn’t go away and instead impacts a person long-term. Our Indiana pain relief doctors are passionate about helping our patients find ways to alleviate and treat their pain. If you are suffering from pain following a car accident, please call us directly. Some of the most common types of injuries and subsequent pain that our patients have experienced include the following–

Back and Neck Pain, Including Headaches

One of the most common reasons that our patients visit our office after being involved in a car accident is because they are suffering from severe amounts of pain in their back, neck, or the surrounding areas, including the shoulders. Headaches are also very common after a car accident.

Pain in these areas often stems from one of the most common car accident injuries: whiplash. Whiplash happens when the head is whipped back and forth, resulting in injuries to the surrounding tissues. 

In addition to whiplash, a patient may have suffered a blow to the back or a strain of the back, vertebrae fractures, shoulder injuries, and more. All of these can lead to an intense amount of chronic pain that feels as though it will never go away. 

Pain in Joints and Extremities

While the back and the neck are the areas of the body that most often hold pain long-term after a car accident, if an individual has suffered a soft tissue or bone fracture injury in another part of the body, such as the hips, knees, shoulders, or elbow, these areas too may be a source of large amounts of pain. For example, a soft tissue injury of the knee could occur in a car accident if a victim is thrust in a position that results in a ligament tear.
