Functional Medicine Explained

Widespread Symptoms from an Auto Collision

Share

Some people will develop widespread pain after an auto injury. Decades ago, people with these symptoms were thought to be exaggerating their injuries, but now we know that there are actual alterations that occur in the brain and nervous system that are at the root for the development of chronic pain.

After suffering an automobile injury, such as whiplash, the structures of the cervical spine, or neck, can be stretched or torn as a result of the back-and-forth motion during an auto collision. The complex tissues surrounding the neck and other areas of the spine then become swollen and inflamed, causing the well-known symptoms of neck pain. In this process, the muscles contract to protect from further injury.

However, if a whiplash-type injury is not treated right away, a repetitive cycle of pain and muscle contractions can occur. This can cause general symptoms throughout the body, including the hands and feet as well as make the individual overly sensitive to pain in general.

Individuals involved in automobile accidents should receive an immediate diagnosis to begin treatment as soon as possible for their whiplash injuries or other complications. Many people who leave their wounds untreated can develop chronic symptoms and widespread pain throughout their body, including their hands and feet, regardless of the original location of the injury. For more information, please feel free to ask Dr. Jimenez or contact us at (915) 850-0900.
