Scientific evidence clearly proves that low back injuries can result from an auto accident. Insurance companies regularly pay for the treatment of low back injuries.
While many patients contact us because they are experiencing pain immediately after an accident, in fact, it is common that you may not experience all the symptoms of an auto accident injury until 1 to 2 weeks after the accident. This is why it is so crucial to be examined as soon after the accident as possible. This will also help avoid prolonged pain and potential long term injury.
Auto accident injuries and workplace injuries, if not treated shortly after the accident, may not ever heal properly. This can result in permanent chronic pain and disability. Even seemingly minor headaches or neck pain may be indicators of serious injuries. Left untreated, this may lead to long term pain or early onset of arthritis.
