Common Air Bag Injuries

Our Houma and Thibodaux Chiropractors Treats Common Air Bag Injuries

Airbags are installed in all vehicles to prevent injuries resulting in death during car accidents. While airbags can save lives, they can also cause injuries. Airbags are deployed at such a high rate of speed that non-life threatening injuries are common. Fortunately, our professional team of chiropractors at Houma-Thibodaux Spine & Rehabilitation can create a treatment plan for your auto accident injury that can facilitate your recovery period and reduce your pain. Here are the top airbag injuries our chiropractors treat at our practice.

Cervical Spine Injuries

The blunt force trauma from the airbag can cause cervical spine injuries like whiplash, sprains, and strains. It can take several days, weeks, or months for symptoms to appear and cause problems in your life.

Concussions

Concussions are is the most common auto accident injury, and it can cause memory loss, cognitive problems, headaches or migraines, and difficulty in concentrating.

Contusions

The speed that the airbag can hit your body forcefully, resulting in contusions to the arms, knees, face, or internal organs. Sometimes they aren't life-threatening, but they can be very painful.

Abrasions

The force of the airbag can also cause abrasions to your face and arms.

Fractures

Airbags deploy so quickly that the impact can result in broken bones. Not only can it fracture your wrist and fingers, but also fracture your rib cage, skull, or facial bones.
