Have You Sustained an Auto Injury in Columbus? Let Health First Family Chiropractic Help You! 

If you were involved in a car accident, you may be experiencing pain in different parts of your body. You may experience shoulder pain, knee pain, back pain, leg pain and neck pain. Some of these injuries are the result of your seat belt tightening up during the accident, while others are caused by the impact itself. Here at Health First Family Chiropractic, we can help to treat all of these symptoms. Here are a few of the injuries that are commonly caused due to the seat belt when you are involved in a car accident.

Rib injuries

Your seat belt is worn across your body. When you are involved in an automobile accident, the seat belt tightens up to hold you in place. Your body is thrown forward and the seat belt no longer has any give. This causes pain, swelling, bruising and other injuries to your ribs. 

Shoulder Injuries

Another injury that is commonly seen after a car accident due to the seat belts are shoulder injuries. Once again, your body is thrown forward or to the side and your seat belt has no give. Your shoulder can hit the seat belt, causing bruising, abrasions, swelling, soft tissue damage and even sprains


One of the most common injuries that are sustained in a car accident is whiplash. Whiplash is caused by your body suddenly jerking forward or to the side in an accident. As you are thrown forward or to the side, your muscles and joints become overextended. When you wear a seatbelt, your body may suddenly be thrown forward, hit the seat belt, and be thrown backward again. This can actually increase the severity of whiplash, but it is still better than the possibility of your flying through the windshield if you are not wearing a seatbelt.
