Back Injuries

Written by Andy Zapata

If you’ve suffered a back injury, you know how painful it can be. Back injuries literally affect everything you do every single day. Walking, sitting, driving, standing…no matter what you do, what position you’re in, you’re in constant pain. Ignoring the pain isn’t going to help, nor will applying a heating pad intermittently throughout the day (though you might get some temporary relief from that).

 

If your back has been injured, especially from a car accident, seek medical attention before the problem becomes even worse. You can begin by calling us at Physical Therapy Now because there’s a good chance you’ll need physical therapy to get you back to a pain free, normal life.

How to Treat Your Back Injury

Treatment for back injuries will obviously depend on the severity of the injury. Very serious injuries will more than likely require surgery; less serious injuries may call for long periods of rest or inactivity in order to allow the injuries and trauma to heal. Regarless of the injury, physical therapy could be highly recommended by your doctor.
