Back Pain from Auto Accident Injuries
Back pain from auto accident injuries is a common occurrence. It occurs when you are in an accident, and your body is thrown around in the vehicle. A cause of back pain from auto accident injuries is your spinal discs. These discs have a jelly-like center that acts as a cushion for your vertebrae. When you are thrown around in a car, these discs can be damaged and cause back pain.
Auto accident injuries can cause other problems, such as neck pain and headaches. These injuries can also lead to long-term issues such as bulging discs.
After an auto accident, consider seeking the help of a chiropractor if you feel any of the following symptoms:
- Pain in your lower or middle back that radiates down into your legs
- Sharp shooting pains in your upper or lower back when you move or turn in bed
- Numbness and tingling in one leg or both legs, sometimes extending into the feet and toes
- Loss of sensation in one leg or both legs, sometimes extending into the feet and toes
- Difficulty walking due to pain in one leg or both legs, sometimes extending into the feet and toes
How Can a Chiropractor Help with Back Pain?
You may be wondering if a visit to the chiropractor is in order if you've been in a car accident and are now experiencing back pain. Chiropractors specialize in treating the spine and back, which allows them to perform adjustments that can help relieve pain and restore function.
When you're injured, your muscles may go into spasms. This can cause pain and stiffness in the affected area. A chiropractor on our team can perform spinal manipulation or another chiropractic adjustment to help relax those muscles and reduce inflammation caused by their spasms.
This process can help reduce pain, soothe inflammation, and restore motion to your spine and surrounding tissues, allowing them to heal properly from your injury.
