Back injuries are a highly common result of car accidents because of the impact involved in the collision. Back sprains or strains, disc injuries and even fractures are seen frequently in auto accident injury evaluations. Even if you feel fine immediately following or a few days after the accident, it is highly important that you seek a professional medical evaluation in order to diagnose soft tissue injuries that may not be painful right away.
Another common auto accident ailment is neck injury. Also a result of the impact involved in the collision, neck pain can be caused by mild injuries such as neck strain or whiplash, but it can also be highly severe. We commonly see auto accident injury patients with disc injuries that require longer term treatment options in order to achieve neck pain relief.
