Back Of The Neck And Chest A Little Pain After The Accident?
Hello, thanks for the question.
Accidents or falls can cause local tissue damage due to direct or indirect collisions / trauma. The severity of tissue damage depends on the severity of the trauma that occurs, if the trauma occurs mildly it can cause external damage only, for example bruising, excessive muscle strain that causes pain, and so forth. But if the tissue damage that occurs is quite severe it can cause fractures, nerve and blood vessel damage, joint displacement, and so forth. All this will usually cause pain complaints. Pain in the chest especially when moving or inhaling that arises after the trauma is feared to be caused by a broken part of the sternum / rib, and this can be dangerous if not handled properly. Pain in the back and arms can be caused by muscle damage alone or it can also be due to bone tissue damage or broken bones. To be sure, you should consult a doctor for an examination. The doctor will conduct a thorough examination and additional examinations such as x-rays, ultrasound, laboratory examinations, etc. as needed to ensure the condition. Handling will be adjusted to the condition of tissue damage that occurs. It is better to avoid excessive physical activity for a while, especially in the area of injury, cold compresses in the area of pain, if complaints are accompanied by severe pain, shortness of breath, and disturbances in moving the arms and legs do not delay to see a doctor.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
