What type of doctor should you see after a car accident?
After a car accident the emergency room staff will check if your injuries are life-threatening. If your injury is not deemed life-threatening or require immediate treatment, you will likely be discharged with instructions to follow up with your primary care doctor. Please note, this doesn’t mean you are not injured.
Neck and Spine Pain After a Car Accident
When the vehicle is rear-ended from behind, your neck initially is thrown backward with the same force as the impact and then recoils in a forward direction. This sudden acceleration-deceleration movement stretches the muscles, ligaments and tendons in the neck beyond their limits and can cause significant neck damage and whiplash, a cervical (neck) injury. In addition, the discs between the vertebrae can also be traumatized and break down. This can result in disc herniation.
A disc herniation injury to your spine often occurs from moving vehicle accidents. The stress put on the spinal column in a auto accident can cause a piece of the spinal structure (called a disk) that separates your back bones or vertebrae, to move out of place. These spine injuries are sometimes also called slipped or ruptured disks. These disk structures can push out into the spinal channel and press against spinal nerves, producing severe back pain, neck pain, leg pain and even hand pain. If you experience any kind of pain after a car accident you should see a specialty car accident doctor immediately.
