Low back discomfort experienced from motor vehicle accidents may be due to multiple sites of inflammation and stress. It is crucial to identify and promptly reduce inflammatory response early on in your treatment to break the cycle of discomfort before it starts.
Discomfort generators causing low back discomfort include but are not limited to severe muscular contractions, ligamentous stress, inflammation of the facet joints and sacroiliac joint and the disruption of the lumbar disc due to excessive traumatic stress. For patients who experience intermittent low back discomfort, a car accident may worsen their condition. These changes may leave a lasting effect on a patient’s ability to function in their daily lives.
