5 Common Causes Of Back Pain - Get The Facts & Treatment Options

Posted by Advanced Injury Care Clinic on Jun 3, 2019 4:12:16 PM

If you suffer from back pain, you are hardly alone.

Four out of every five adults experience the symptoms of back pain at least once in their lifetime.

If you're the one in five, who doesn't, congratulations.

For the rest of us, though, we might be left wondering why.

It's because the back is a complex structure that is made up of 33 vertebrae, over 30 muscles, numerous ligaments, several joints, and intervertebral discs.

All of these structures have to function together to help you move and provide a stable foundation for your body.

If just one of the structures is injured or out of place, it can cause significant discomfort.

Fortunately, most people recover from back pain without ever realizing what happened.

When the pain lingers, though, discovering the underlying source of the pain can help guide your treatment.

Then, understanding what causes back pain is key to keeping it from coming back.

If you are experiencing persistent back pain, it's important to visit back pain doctors

The Most Common Car Accident Injuries

Posted by Advanced Injury Care Clinic on May 30, 2019 12:25:04 PM

Just about 3 million people are injured in car crashes every year.

And, if you have to commute to work every day, I bet you aren't surprised because you probably feel like you get stuck behind a car accident just about every day.

Most of the time, people can just pull off to the side of the road and wait for the police to arrive. Their injuries are no worse than a stubbed toe or a sprained ankle you'd get playing basketball.

They heal relatively quickly and don't require much medical intervention if they require any at all.

But other accidents can be much worse, even life-threatening. These are the accidents that leave you stranded on the interstate for hours trying to get to or from work.

The injuries people sustain in car accidents vary depending on numerous factors, including seat belt use, area of impact, speed, and whether or not the airbags deployed upon impact.

The injuries can also be broken down into two broad categories; impact injuries and penetrating injuries.

Impact injuries are caused when part of a person's body is slammed against the interior of the car upon impact.

Penetrating injuries are typically cuts and scrapes caused by glass or loose objects flying around inside of the car.
