Car accident related back injuries are some of the worst and most common sources of chronic pain. The massive forces generated during a car accident can be enough to tear apart soft tissue and shatter bone.
Life-altering back injuries are often the result of serious car accidents. Even minor accidents can cause injuries. Sometimes after a car accident, people may not realize they have been injured because the onset of pain can be delayed.
The back and spinal column are an intricate source of interconnected and overlapping elements, and an aggravation of or injury to any of these delicate structures can cause extreme back pain and, subsequently, pain that radiates or affects other parts of the body. Discomfort from resultant lower back muscles spasms can be severe, and pain from a number of issues can be chronic.
While back pain after a car accident is extremely common, the symptoms and severity of the pain can vary widely. In fact, the back is the most common site of car accident injuries, including upper back injuries, sprains, strains, herniated discs, and spinal cord injuries.
Even though serious back injuries can take some time to show up after an accident, they may become a source of chronic pain leading to loss of mobility and inability to work or enjoy hobbies.
