Common Injuries that Cause Muscle Pain
Muscle pain can be caused by a variety of injuries sustained in car accidents, as we have already mentioned. These are just a few of the injuries that can result in muscle pain.
- Sprains or strains – These are the most common soft tissue injuries sustained in car accidents. A sprain is caused by a ligament being stretched or torn. A strain is when a tendon, muscle, or tendon is stretched/torn. Ligaments connect bones and tendons connect muscles and bones.
- Whiplash This is an injury that occurs when the neck’s rapid, back-and-forth movement causes the soft tissues between the neck and the head to be ripped or stretched.
- Airbag injuries and seat belt injuries – While airbags are a lifesaver, they can also cause muscle pain. For example, a seat belt can cause abdominal injuries by compressing the abdomen.
- Broken vertebrae– A car accident can cause a broken vertebra or muscle pain. Vertebrae refer to the bones that make up the spinal column.
- Facet joint injuries – The facet joints connect the spine bones. A facet common injury can occur when the spine bones move out of their proper place.
- Herniated disks – A spinal disc is located between each vertebra. A herniated disc occurs when a spinal disk is torn or punctured.
A doctor can diagnose muscle pain caused by a car accident.
