How common is a back injury resulting from an auto collision? The short answer? Very common. The Mayo Clinic notes more than 40% of all spinal injuries come from a vehicular accident. Common injuries include:
- Disk Herniation
- Compression Fractures
Whiplash is an especially well-known complication which can result from a car accident, although it's usually associated with a rear-end collision. When the impact of a vehicle collision jars the driver from behind, the driver's neck bends backward over the headrest. Immediately after, their head jerks forward--like the quick cracking motion of a whip. It can take up to 24 hours for the first signs to appear, as the inflammation often takes time for the body to manifest. Symptoms can include pain, stiffness, headaches, fatigue, dizziness, and other symptoms. It can get bad enough that memory problems or even tinnitus result.
