An injury to the back or neck is among the most common types of maladies suffered in a car accident. The jolting motion caused by a sudden stop can wrench vertebrae out of alignment and cause damage to the joints or discs as well.
Whiplash is quite common, despite improved safety features in vehicles, and damage to the upper cervical disc in the neck can cause lingering pain in the back and arms as well.
Since the spine is a key part of the central nervous system, victims may feel pain in other parts of the body after a back injury. "...Since the spine is a key part of the central nervous system, victims may feel pain in other parts of the body after a back injury."
People who have been in car accidents report weakness in the limbs, trouble controlling their bladders, increased breathing difficulties and numbness or tingling feelings in various parts of the body--all of which can be traced back to a spinal injury.
