Common Air Bag Injuries

Common Air Bag Injuries

There’s no doubt that airbags can protect you against serious injuries in an auto crash. At the same time, they can also cause injuries, especially if they deploy unexpectedly. At Lubbock Advanced Physical Medicine, we have ample experience in treating air bag injuries. By becoming familiar with common air bag injuries, you may be able to take precautions against them.

Common Air Bag Injuries

Airbags tend to deploy with a great deal of force, putting you at risk of an airbag auto accident injury. Facial and body abrasions are common injuries caused by air bag deployment. Other injuries include:

  • Neck injuries in the form of whiplash, muscle strains, and sprains
  • Dislocated shoulder, fractured hands or wrists
  • Back and body injuries to include broken ribs, fractured spine, misalignment of bones and joints
  • Soft tissue injuries

You may start feeling pain right away or several days later, as the shock on your body begins to wear off. By getting an evaluation from our Lubbock chiropractor immediately after an auto accident, you’ll know what type of injury you have, so you can get treatment without delay.

Chiropractic Care for Auto Accident Injury

At Lubbock Advanced Physical Medicine, we’ll give you a thorough examination to determine if airbag deployment has caused you a musculoskeletal injury. We’ll review your medical history, go over your symptoms, and identify the source of your injury, so we can recommend treatment.

Chiropractic techniques can help alleviate pain and discomfort of musculoskeletal air bag injuries. Chiropractic adjustments are used to realign bones and joints to reduce pain, improve range of motion, and restore balance to your system. Massage therapies help ease inflammation and pain and restore mobility. We’ll customize a chiropractic treatment plan to meet your healthcare needs. In addition to treating your pain, we'll treat the cause of your pain to help you heal.
