Recognizing Lower Back Injuries After a New Hampshire Accident

Lower back strains and sprains are among the most common injuries that cause lower back pain, according to the American Association of Neurological Surgeons. After a New Hampshire car accident or certain types of workplace accidents, it’s not uncommon to experience back pain. Understanding how lower back strains and sprains work can help you recognize the condition after an accident and work with your physician to heal more quickly.

Lower back strain occurs when the muscles in the lower back are twisted, stretched, or pushed beyond their limits. Lower back sprains, meanwhile, occur when the ligaments that hold the bones together in the lower back are damaged or torn. Both types of lower back injuries can be debilitating.

Common symptoms of lower back strain and sprain include lower back pain that does not affect the legs, stiffness in the lower back, and difficulty moving or standing due to pain. After an injury, the pain may last up to three weeks or more as the damaged muscles and ligaments heal. Seeing a doctor as soon as possible after an accident can help an injured lower back heal more quickly. Common treatments for lower back strain and sprain include bed rest, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory pain medications (NSAIDs), and physical therapy.
