Car accidents are a major cause of severe back injuries, including sprained spinal ligaments and disc damage. Individuals who experience soreness or pain after being involved in an auto accident should immediately seek medical care. While over-the-counter analgesics can help temporarily manage the pain, back injuries can require long-term treatment and should be evaluated by a professional.
After seeing a doctor, the injured party may be referred to specialists such as a physical therapist or chiropractor. For insurance and compensation claim purposes, patients should always record and document every medical treatment they receive in relation to the back injury.
