Auto Injuries Q & A
What injuries can occur during an auto accident?
Auto accidents can subject the body to extreme forces it isn’t designed to handle. These forces put strain on the entire body, leading to injuries. Victims in an auto accident can sustain almost any type of injury. Some of the most common auto accident injuries include:
- Ligament sprains or tears
- Joint damage
- Lacerations and burns
- Broken bones
Some of these injuries will heal on their own. However, many patients continue to experience symptoms long after the accident because of scar tissue and inflammation. Some of the symptoms patients may experience weeks or months later include chronic pain, limited mobility, dizziness, and headaches.

The doctors at Structural Based Therapy have many years of experience working with patients who have been injured in car accidents. They know how to recognize and treat auto accident injuries effectively. Depending on the patient’s specific symptoms, Structural Based Therapy may recommend:

When should patients seek treatment for an auto accident injury?

However, if a patient seeks treatment early, the doctors at Structural Based Therapy can address the patient’s problems and reduce the risk of complications. This treatment will also establish a record should there be any questions regarding auto insurance coverage should your injury develop well after the accident.
