Passenger vans are a great way to get around because of their versatility. Whether it is commuting to church, school or the soccer play-offs, the van has plenty of space to pile in adults, kids, pets and supplies for the journey ahead. But once in a awhile everything does not go as planned.
A few examples that are common include another vehicle backing up out of a parking space, without looking, and hitting the van. Or the driver ahead stops suddenly without warning, not realizing that there is a van, full of vulnerable children eager to play carefree, following behind. Or there is an unattended pot-hole in the pavement causing the van to swerve off the road momentarily, but then gain control. To no fault of the driver, these common incidences may leave a passenger with an ache or pain which worsens over time. What probably happened is a van injury.
The most common types of van injuries include neck and back muscle trauma strain injuries. These occur when the body is accelerated into an abnormal position by an overwhelming force. Besides the muscle being involved, tendons and ligaments are often injured. Tendons hold our muscles to the bones and ligaments hold our bones together. These structures are deeper than muscles and when injured cause symptoms which persists and often require proper treatment for healing.
