HOW CAN YOU TELL IF A CAR ACCIDENT CAUSED BACK INJURY
The only way to determine if a car accident caused back injury is to have an examination by a qualified physician. Normally chiropractic physicians are utilized to evaluate back injuries following a car accident. If you have never had a back injury before, it is quite likely that your injury is caused by your car accident. If you had a prior back injury your car accident may have aggravated your prior injury or you may have a new unrelated injury. Often an MRI or X Ray is used as a diagnostic tool to evaluate a back injury following a car accident. A chiropractic physician may refer you to a specialist such as an Orthopedic surgeon for a consultation.
