20-50 million people are injured or disabled due to car accidents each year. Car accidents can be extremely stressful, burdensome and financially costly. Many people who have been in a car crash don’t feel symptoms like pain and mobility problems until days or even weeks after the accident. For this reason, it’s important to receive immediate medical treatment following a traffic collision. Common injuries after a car accident include whiplash, headaches, back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, and knee pain.
At Therapydia, we offer same and next day appointments for anyone who has been in a car accident.

Common symptoms after a car accident may include:
- Stiffness to neck, arms, upper back, and even the face
- Numbness into arms, neck and upper back
- Headache, dizziness, nausea
- Generalized weakness but more with head and neck
- Altered sleeping habits and patterns
- Difficulty with concentration
