Understand Back Pain After a Car Accident & How Chiropractic Care Can Help

Common Types & Causes of back Pain

We Address Lower Back Pain & Upper Back Pain After a Car Accident or Injury

Low back pain is most often caused by injury or from overuse of muscles, ligaments, and joints.

Sports injuries, auto accidents, or other muscle strain injuries can cause your bones and vertebrae in your spine to become misaligned, causing pressure on muscles, joints, and nerves associated with your spinal column.

Overuse, strain or poor posture, like sitting at a computer for long periods of time can cause upper or lower back pain and can contribute to neck pain or shoulder pain.

Often lack of strength in your upper back or repetitive motion can cause muscle irritation bringing joint and muscle inflammation, which only adds to the list of causes of your back pain.

It is common to experience acute back pain after a car accident, and it is important that if you have pain you get the treatment you need to prevent chronic symptoms. Back pain should be taken seriously as it is an indication of a more serious problem or potential injury.

How Can Back Pain Affect Your Life? 

Short Term Impact of Back Pain

Acute back pain is defined as a sudden onset of throbbing, burning, stabbing, or aching to the upper or lower back. Acute back pain can be caused by a muscle strain, an injury, car accident, or a fender bender and lasts anywhere from a few days to a few weeks.

Back pain may limit your ability to sit or stand for long periods of time. It can also make it hard to participate in routine activities such as exercising, sleeping, working on a computer and more. 

Long Term Impact of back Pain

If you are struggling with any kind of back pain for longer than a few days, particularly after a car accident it is very important that you get the right chiropractic treatment you need. In the long run, the sooner you address the pain or discomfort the better chance you have at getting better.

Chronic back pain can decrease your ability to do all the things you need and want each and every day. Back pain can be debilitating and frustrating because it can take a long time to address symptoms particularly if you have had symptoms for more than a few weeks. Back pain can be an indication of other soft tissue injuries that need to be addressed for you to recover.

Our goal at Axcess Accident Center is to reduce the risk of chronic back pain so that you can do all the activities you need and want too after an auto accident.
