Car Accidents and Concussions | Marcum Chiropractic Clinic

The forces placed upon people during automobile crashes are usually too much for the body to withstand without being injured.  The common injuries include neck pain, headaches, back pain, shoulder strains, bruises, etc.  Another common injury, and one that is often undiagnosed, is a mild traumatic brain injury (a.k.a., concussion).  The excessive gravitational forces the head/neck undergo in a wreck often cause the brain to slam against the inside of peoples’ skulls thereby bruising the brain and causing a concussion.  The concussion can cause symptoms such as dizziness, vision or hearing problems, irritability, forgetfulness, sleep-disturbance, difficulty concentrating, anxiety, and many more.  If you’ve been in an accident and you’ve experience any of these symptoms chances are you have/had a concussion.  Be sure to be examined by an auto-injury expert following any wreck to be properly diagnosed and cared for.  Call Marcum Chiropractic Clinic at 503-235-7130 today!
