What do I do if I am experiencing back pain from a rear end collision?
If you have been involved in a rear end collision, it is very likely that you may be experiencing back pain as a result of the accident. One of the most common forms of back and neck pain is whiplash, which can cause stiffness. It is important to seek medical treatment immediately because back pain could potentially be a sign of a more serious injury, such as a herniated disc. If you are unable to go to the doctor or chiropractor right away, try stretching more, reduce any stress that you place on your back, and be sure to get a good amount of sleep every night. However, if your back pain improves, still make sure that you see a doctor or chiropractor. Your condition could worsen in the future, which is why it is important to start a treatment plan as soon as possible.
