Auto Injuries Causing Chronic Neck Pain

Share

A Canadian study found that a considerable percentage of individuals who�ve been injured in these types of car crashes may eventually develop a form of chronic pain.

�The research was conducted at the University of Alberta where 268 people who had suffered a grade 1 or 2 neck injury as a result of an automobile accident were evaluated. These were the least severe types of injuries as the scale also consists of grade 3 and 4. Each individual was examined at 3 months, 6 months, and at 1 year after the time of the accident. Additionally, the individuals were specifically asked the question, �Do you feel that you have recovered from your injuries?�

The end results of the study revealed that 3 months post-injury, about 38% of individuals reported pain and other symptoms. Then, 6 months post-injury results revealed that about 22% of individuals reported pain and other symptoms. Finally, the end results of the study revealed that 1 year post-injury, about 18% of individuals still reported pain and other symptoms. The results confirmed what previous research had found. A British research paper from 2009 described that as many as 5% of individuals may be permanently disabled from an auto collision and that a considerable amount of more than 5% of individuals may experience painful symptoms even 10 years or more after the initial injury.

If you�ve been involved in an automobile accident and experienced an injury that is causing you symptoms of pain and discomfort, it�s essential to seek immediate medical attention to diagnose a possible injury or aggravated condition after the collision.�Early treatment can be the key to preventing chronic symptoms from developing in the first place.�

Dr. Alex Jimenez D.C.,C.C.S.T’s insight:

From being in a hurry, to being frustrated or distracted, automobile accidents can be unpredictable under circumstances of heavy traffic. Rear-end auto collisions are common in the suburbs and cities, causing injuries most frequently affecting the neck. Whiplash and other neck injuries resulting from auto accidents can develop into chronic pain if left untreated and it’s important to seek immediate medical attention post-injury.
