Dizziness and Vertigo
Dizziness and vertigo are fairly common symptoms after an auto injury. There are a few different causes for these symptoms:
The most common cause of dizziness is injury to the tissues of the neck. When the ligaments and discs of the neck are injured, inflammation and scar tissue can affect the nerves of the spine that help us regulate balance. In fact, recent studies show that most patients suffer from balance problems after an auto accident, even if they don’t have symptoms of dizziness.
In some cases, vertigo can be caused by direct or indirect brain injury.

having some soft tissue damage. Did you know that most auto accident injuries are not detected for months or even years? Most auto accident victims are unaware of hidden injuries because the pain is masked by medications. Sadly, most doctors don’t even have the training to detect soft tissue injuries, so they prescribe drugs to cover up your symptoms. Insurance companies win because they get released from liability by requesting that victims settle their cases before they even get checked for soft tissue injuries! Soft Tissue Injury SYMPTOMS include, muscle stiffness, neck pain, numbness and tingling into arms or legs, low back pain, fatigue, muscle spasms, headache, mid-back pain, difficulty sleeping, sore, achy muscles, whiplash, difficulty concentrating. **Improper healing of soft tissue injuries can cause arthritis and long-term pain.
