Atlanta, Georgia -

Car Wreck Doctor, based in Atlanta, Georgia, has announced that they have published a new blog listing the most common injuries caused in auto accidents. The article explains that the severity and type of the car accident injuries depend on several factors such as whether seat belts were used; the part of the car that was hit; how the person was seated; whether the airbags deployed; and whether it was low-speed or high-speed collision. The injuries include traumatic brain injuries and head injuries; spine, neck and back injuries; broken bones; psychological injuries; internal injuries; chest injuries; and arm and leg injuries.

A spokesperson for Car Wreck Doctor says, “Sometimes the injuries are not apparent. Just because you feel fine immediately following an accident doesn't mean you haven't sustained any injuries. Depending on the type and nature of the injury, it could take hours, days, weeks, or even months for symptoms to start appearing. If you're ever in a car accident, it's best to seek medical treatment even if you don't think you need it. A trip to the emergency room or even to a local chiropractor can diagnose any injuries you might have and give you peace of mind.”

Car Wreck Doctor is composed of chiropractic injury doctors who specialize in the treatment of victims of personal injury accidents and car wrecks. They will connect accident victims to reliable chiropractors, medical doctors, and even personal injury attorneys.

Head injuries and traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are frequently observed after car accidents. These injuries may be the result of the head hitting the windshield, the steering wheel, or a side window. In TBIs, the brain function is disrupted by a traumatic event and its severity can range from mild to very severe. Mild TBIs are usually in the form of a concussion that can heal by itself within a few weeks. However, the more severe TBIs can result in long-term or even permanent cognitive damage. Car accidents may also result in facial fractures, skull fractures, lacerations, and bruises.

With regards to spine, neck, and back injuries, whiplash is very common. The sudden jolt during the accident often moves the head and neck beyond the normal range of motion, causing strain to the tendons and ligaments of the neck. Serious spinal injuries can also occur and these can lead to paralysis or death. It is advisable for victims with spine, neck and back injuries to visit a chiropractor and undergo a complete examination.

Meanwhile, broken bones are are mainly due to the impacts that occur during auto accidents. Commonly broken during a car accident are the arms, wrists, ribs, legs, and ankles. Some broken bones can be treated with a cast but the more serious ones will require surgery and may never return to normal.

And it is the psychological injuries that can be the most damaging. The most common psychological injury is post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Research conducted by the National Center for PTSD have revealed that approximately 9 percent of car accident survivors will develop PTSD due to the car crash. Depression and anxiety may also occur due to physical injuries that restrict their daily functioning.

Another possibility is the presence of internal injuries, which may cause internal bleeding. This has to be treated immediately and will require emergency medical treatment. Meanwhile, chest injuries are quite common especially for the driver because of impact against the steering wheel. Chest injuries will usually be in the form of bruises and contusions. However, if the force is strong enough, it could result in broken ribs or internal injuries. And even if the seat belt is worn, thus, preventing contact with the steering wheel, the seat belt itself can cause severe bruising.

Car Wreck Doctor has specified as its mission the provision of assistance to accident victims so that they can connect with professional chiropractors, medical doctors, and personal injury lawyers.
