Car accidents are one of the most common causes of chronic back pain. The impact of the crash, even at relatively slow speeds, is great enough to cause serious back injuries that need medical attention, physical therapy and sometimes even back surgery. Even a minor "fender bender" can cause major back injuries. Back pain from automobile accidents can continue for years. A back injury that goes untreated can develop into arthritis in later years. If you suffer from acute low back pain, sciatica, numbness in the extremities, headaches, irritability and problems concentrating, you need to seek medical attention, a Doctor of Chiropractic can help.
When one car hits another, each person's body is thrown toward the impact, then away from it. This is Whiplash. Even at slow speeds, the wrenching force puts stress and strain on the spine, especially the neck. This may pull spinal bones out of line and spinal adjustments are needed. Symptoms may appear right away, or may not show up for weeks. TexCare Injury and Back Pain can help treat these injuries from your car accident, please call today.
