Common Auto Accident Injury

Common Car Accident Injuries In Lexington, KY

Car accidents jar the body, throwing the spine and neck out of alignment and injuring extremity joints. The pain can be so severe that you end up missing work. Our Lexington chiropractor can diagnose your musculoskeletal injuries and recommend a course of treatment to naturally reduce your pain and heal your injuries.


Concussions are considered traumatic brain injuries. They occur when the head impacts an object and that impact is hard enough to cause the brain to bruise and swell. Symptoms include feeling groggy or slowed down, difficulty concentrating, nausea, headaches and dizziness. The symptoms of a concussion may not appear immediately, so it is important to get seem by our chiropractor if you think you hit your head during your car accident.

Knee Injuries

Knee injuries can occur when the knee impacts the dash or door. This often causes bruising, swelling and damage to the ACL or other ligaments in the knee. Knee pain may be instant, but the full extent of the injury may not be known for days. An impact to the knee from an auto accident can cause swelling, bruising and pain.

Lower Back Pain

Lower back pain is common after a car accident. During the impact, the back muscles can be strained. The ligaments can become sprained, and the vertebrae can be thrown out of alignment. Severe impacts can result in bulging and herniated discs. Symptoms include pain, inflammation and loss of range of motion in the back.

Shoulder/Arm Injuries

Shoulder and arm injuries can occur from the impact against your seatbelt or if you were holding onto the steering wheel or stick shift at the time of the impact. This can cause shoulder, wrist, elbow and arm injuries. Symptoms include bruising, swelling, pain and loss of range of motion or pain while moving the afflicted joint.


Whiplash is a severe injury of the neck and head. It occurs when the neck is stretched well beyond its normal range of motion. During a car accident, the neck and neck are forcefully jerked back and forth. This strains and sprains the muscles and ligaments and misaligns the cervical vertebrae. Whiplash injuries are not readily apparent. They can take days and even weeks to fully appear. Common symptoms include headaches, migraines, light sensitivity, neck pain and dizziness. If you have recently been in an auto accident, it is important to schedule an appointment with our chiropractor to check for whiplash. This is important even if you are not experiencing symptoms.

The Lynch family truly cares for each of their patients and makes you feel welcome and goes out of their way to get you the best care. Dr. Ryan Lynch personally called another chiropractor for me in Louisiana when I went on vacation to ensure that I continued my treatments while out of town. Courteous, Caring, Sincere, Honest, & Professional are terms I often use when I talk about Lynch Chiropractic Care!!"

  • "Dr. Ryan Lynch has been adjusting my back and neck for the past month, and I will have to say that each time I go, I come out feeling more mobile and less in pain. He also explains what he is about to do and why, making you feel more involved in the procedure. The aftermath of my curved spine and a motorcycle accident started to show in forms of discomfort and pain in the recent months, and this was the place a friend of mine had highly recommended. I am glad to have taken the recommendation."
