A car crash may put your bladder at risk

Distracted, careless and aggressive drivers seem to be everywhere these days. As such, even if you have been able to avoid a car crash so far, you may not be able to miss one forever. Unfortunately, 2018 was the deadliest year in the past decade for drivers on Nevada roadways. 

An automobile crash does not have to be fatal for it to be serious. On the contrary, there are hundreds of life-altering injuries that you may sustain in a collision. While rare, bladder injuries sometimes occur in single-, double- and multi-car crashes. 

The anatomy of your bladder 

Because the bladder sits between the pelvic bones, it typically has protection from trauma. That is not always the case, though. If you sustain a blunt-force injury or penetrative one, your bladder may sustain serious damage. After all, the bladder itself does not offer much in the way of protection from injury. 

Forces from car accidents 

Car crashes can exert a tremendous amount of force on the human body. If you remember from high school physics class, moving objects have kinetic energy. When they stop suddenly, such as during a collision with another object, objects must quickly dispel built-up energy. Further, moving objects continue to move until something stops them. 

Seatbelt injuries 

While you should always wear your seatbelt, you must realize that seatbelt injuries sometimes occur. In many instances, minor bruising is the result of a high-force impact. Still, your seatbelt may break your pelvic bones or otherwise injure your bladder. Your bladder is at the most risk when it is full. If your bladder breaks during a car accident, you may need surgery. You could also develop an infection. 

You probably do not think about your bladder often. Nonetheless, if you are in a car crash, you should worry about the health of your urinary system. Asking a medical professional to examine you soon after any accident is the best way to know whether you have sustained a serious injury.
