Car accidents are never fun, and the pain that usually accompanies a car collision makes it even worse. Car accident injuries can have many symptoms--you may experience immediate or unexpected pain lasting for weeks or even months. If you consider yourself lucky to walk away from the accident with just some cuts and bruises, damage to your spinal column may have occurred but not be noticeable until long after the car accident. If not treated properly, low back pain or a herniated disc can cause serious complications and prevent you from leading a full and healthy life.

A very common cause of pain after a car accident injury is a herniated disc. A herniated disc occurs when the sudden collision puts abrupt pressure and intense stress on the spinal column, causing a disc to bulge or to slip out of place. Once a disc slips out of place, it will then force pressure on the spinal nerves--pinching them. This pressure can lead to extreme back, leg, neck, and arm pain.

The bottom two discs of your spinal column are the most vulnerable and most likely to become herniated, which can cause chronic lower back pain. A ruptured disc in the lower back can also pinch the sciatic nerve, causing chronic pain and numbness in the calf, foot, and big toe, and you may have trouble walking, performing daily activities, or even feel an unexpected tingling sensation in your back, legs, or toes.

Chiropractic Care can help

Traditional forms of medicine often treat low back pain by covering it up with medication and surgery. Chiropractic care is about overall wellness and looks at the body as a whole. At Nokomis Chiropractic, located in South Minneapolis, we are committed to not just managing the pain, but also resolving the underlying issue for your back pain. Studies have proven that chiropractic care, physical therapy and massage therapy are a better overall treatment option than medication and surgery.
