TREATMENT FOR BACK PAIN AFTER CAR ACCIDENT IN NJ
Have you been injured in a car accident? Are you suffering with chronic pain because of this accident? Unfortunately, every 14 seconds, someone in the US is injured by a car accident. In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there are more than six million car accidents in the US each year. Injuries from can accidents range in severity and should be evaluated as soon as possible.
Pain after car accident may not be the only symptom!
Pain after car accident is usually an immediate result of an automobile accident – however, injuries may go undetected for days, weeks or even months. Slowly, other symptoms may start to develop. These include:
- Back Pain
- Leg Pain
- Muscle Spasms
- Neck Pain
- Shoulder Pain
Most people involved in an automobile accident suffer a whiplash injury. A whiplash, also know as a neck sprain, strain or hyperextension injury, is used to describe a soft tissue neck injury. Your head “whips” forward (hyperflexion) and then backwards (hyperextension) or vice versa. When this occurs, tendons, ligaments and muscles that protect and cushion the spine can become damaged – as well as injuring discs and the spine itself. When tissues are stretched or torn, the spine becomes significantly less stable. Factors that contribute to the severity of a whiplash include:
- The way a person is seated in the car.
- Being properly restrained (shoulder and seat belt).
If you have a suffered whiplash injury, it is vital to seek whiplash treatment.
In addition to suffering with symptoms associated with a whiplash, many people experience back pain after car accident. Fortunately, our Team of Doctors and Therapists are experts at evaluating and treating injuries after car accident.
