Neck And Back Injuries From A Boston Car Accident
Many people unfortunately suffer injuries from a motor vehicle collision. Sometimes the injuries are minor and sometimes they are severe. Neck and back injuries from a Boston car accident are quite common.
Cervical spine or neck injuries from a car accident are typically strains and sprains. These are referred to as soft tissue injuries. Whiplash is a very common neck injury caused by car crashes. Many people need to go to the hospital and receive x-rays for neck pain after an accident. With anti-inflammatories and proper rest, these injuries typically heal without lasting effects.
Frequently neck injuries can be assisted with the help of a chiropractor or physical therapist. If there are more serious injuries, then an orthopedic doctor may be needed. For very serious neck injuries, such as a herniated disc, or neck fracture, then injections and even surgery may become necessary.
Back injuries are also really common after a car accident. As with neck injuries, many people with back pain following a crash will go to the hospital and receive x-rays, and they may be prescribed medication. They may have to go to their primary care physician. The PCP may refer the patient to a chiropractor or physical therapist for further treatment. Usually back injuries heal on their own, but other times more invasive measures are needed.
