It is crucial that your back and/or neck injury is diagnosed properly. Without a proper diagnosis, the treatments that you begin to receive may not have the intended effects.
Back injuries can cause pain to radiate throughout your body every time you move. They can be difficult to rehabilitate and leave the sufferer with a lifetime of pain. Some of the types of back injuries commonly seen after motor vehicle accidents include:
- Lower back injury (strains, sprains)
- Chronic back pain
- Herniated disc
- Nerve and spinal cord injuries
- Misdiagnosis of back injuries
Many neck injuries sustained in a vehicle accident come in the form of whiplash. This can be the result of a rear-end collision where your head snaps forward and back, placing a great deal of force and strain on your neck. Whiplash is an injury to the muscles in the neck, resulting in sprains and strains. We also see disc injuries in the neck, which end up limiting motion and the ability of a victim to turn his or her head.
