Shoulder, Arm, Wrist, and Hand Injury
Often times in a motor vehicle accident an individual will suffer from shoulder, arm, wrist and hand injuries. Your body quickly moves back and forth without enough time for you to react. The abrupt force of impact causes trauma in the bones. The trauma can include a fracture, swelling, and bruising.
When you feel the pain, it is a warning sign that something is wrong. Just treating the symptom can prolong the healing. The cause of the pain needs to be dealt with. Our chiropractor at Beyond Wellness Chiropractic Center can determine the ultimate cause of the pain and develop a treatment plan that is best suited to your needs.
Your hand and wrist can be injured in the motor vehicle accident if it comes in contact with the airbag, steering wheel, dashboard, or tangled in the seat-belt.
