Knee Pain After a Car Accident
Are you suffering knee pain after a car accident? Did you know that one of the most common car accident injuries is a knee injury? When you are driving your knees are close to the steering wheel, the dashboard, and your car door. Impact can result in bone damage. It can result even more often in damage to the soft tissue. For example an injury sometimes referred to as “dashboard knee” occurs when the forward force of the knee hits the dashboard.

The victim of a knee injury can have high levels of pain and be unable to walk. Even if such severe symptoms aren’t there right away, there could still be serious damage to the knee. A small amount of knee pain left unchecked could lead to chronic knee problems in the future. You should not take a “wait and see” attitude with something as serious as a painful knee injury.
