Car accidents in the surrounding areas of Bradenton, Lakewood Ranch, Sarasota, and Fruitville can cause a variety of problems for passengers and drivers. In particular, many people involved in car accidents later experience upper back and lower back pain. Knowing what causes the back pain and what you can do to seek treatment for your pain can help you make a full recovery.
Car accidents can cause back pain by damaging the spinal vertebrae and the discs between the vertebrae. Often, this damage occurs when the body is jerked suddenly forward or backward in the seat, causing compression of the spine that damages the discs. At the same time, this same traumatic event can cause small tears in the muscles and ligaments of the neck and back. All of this causes back pain.
When the muscles, joints, and ligaments in the back and neck are injured, this causes inflammation and stiffness of the tissues, making mobility difficult. This may also cause subluxations, a condition that occurs when the spinal cord becomes cramped between the vertebrae of the spine. Subluxations can inhibit the functionality of the central nervous system and impair the brain's ability to heal itself, leading to ongoing pain. Without treatment, this condition can last for a long time.
