One of the most common injuries from a Las Vegas car accident revolves around injuries to the spine. This includes pain in the back and neck that can persist until properly treated. Car accident back pain can range from extremely annoying to downright debilitating. It is important that you take care of yourself so that the pain does not persist.
There are many things you can do to help alleviate the pain you might feel after a car accident. When you hire aLas Vegas personal injury attorney, that attorney will coordinate with medical providers to make sure you get the treatment you need. Most of the time these doctors will also work on a lien so that you don’t have to pay money out of pocket for an injury that was not your fault.
Ways to Alleviate Back Pain
However, if you are one of those that refuse to speak with an attorney, no matter how much pain you are in, we want to give you some tips that can help alleviate the pain until you can no longer take it. Here are our top 3 tips to alleviate lower back pain after a car accident:
1) Visit a Chiropractor: Chiropractors work on necks and backs all day long. They know how to spot a spinal issue and treat it with chiropractic care. With consistent chiropractic care, many spinal injury symptoms can be alleviated if not completely eliminated. If you are interested in speaking with a chiropractor but do not have insurance, a Las Vegas personal injury attorney can assist you in getting your medical treatment paid for.
2) Take up Yoga: Yoga is no longer a trend that can be dismissed. Doctors are now regularly recommending Yoga exercise to help strengthen the muscles in the body and specifically in the spinal region. A recent study stated that when 228 individuals with lower back pain used yoga for 75 minutes each week for three months, they experienced a 50% improvement in their lower back pain compared to other treatments.
3) Treat with Hot and Cold: Hot and cold treatments have been around for many years and the effectiveness of the treatment has been well documented. The treatment is simple. Prepare a hot implement and a cold implement. Directly apply each hot and cold implement to the problem area over and over again until you feel relief of your symptoms.
The combination of these three tips can provide the greatest amount of relieve for any individual who suffers from car accident back pain. If you want to get rid of the pain, you need to take action and stop hoping that the pain will just go away.
Contact a Car Accident Back Pain Attorney
Despite consistent pain, many do not contact an attorney. The reluctance to speak with a Las Vegas personal injury attorney might have to do with the fact that they are afraid they won’t be believed, but, more commonly, people feel like the symptoms they are feeling after a car accident will likely just go away. Actually, studies say that more than 70% of people who have visited an emergency room after a car crash still feel symptoms 6 weeks later.
