The Real Hardship After an Auto Accident

The Real Hardship After an Auto Accident - El Paso Chiropractor

Individuals involved in automobile accidents are frequently accused of pretending to suffer from pain and other symptoms in order to earn a profit from insurance companies, but the truth is that in the majority of the cases, people involved in an auto collision are actually hurt and injured. Another large percentage of those individuals also refuse to follow through a legal process after their auto accidents despite suffering from chronic pain.

In the U.S., if an individual develops chronic neck pain or other type of symptoms after an automobile accident, it’s not uncommon for them to be viewed with great suspicion by others, as if their symptoms were not real. However, researchers from the University of North Carolina School of Medicine conducted a study where the medical records of 948 auto injury patients were analyzed to evaluate their musculoskeletal pain after an auto accident. Of those patients, about 70% of the individuals reported ongoing musculoskeletal symptoms six weeks after the automobile accident. Also, more than one third of the individuals experienced pain in four or more areas of the body.

Despite the chronic symptoms, according to the study, only 17% of individuals had followed through with legal processes six weeks after the auto collision. Among those not pursuing litigation, 28% had moderate to severe neck pain, 13% had widespread musculoskeletal pain, and 4% had fibromyalgia-like symptoms.

After being involved in an automobile accident, suffering an injury that resulted in a condition of persistent pain and symptoms can be both mentally and physically difficult. Not only do a majority of people face lifestyle changes but these individuals often experience the burden of not being believed.

While depression and PTSD have shown to also affect the development of chronic pain, this study was conducted to help remind the public that the physical symptoms of auto injuries are real. Many other studies have also documented the tissue damage, inflammation, and nervous system changes that can occur after whiplash type injuries and other injuries resulting from an auto collision.

Whether or not you plan on proceeding with legal processes after an automobile accident, it is essential to seek medical attention as soon as possible to prevent chronic pain symptoms from developing. Chiropractors can help diagnose any possible injuries or underlying conditions that could be causing your pain and discomfort as well as effectively helping to relieve acute and chronic symptoms after an auto injury. Hopefully the results of this study will contribute to helping doctors and the public understand that these symptoms are common, including among patients who don’t pursue litigation.

Pain in the Quadratus Lumborum Muscle

A majority of the population have at some point experienced low back pain in their lifetimes. Although low back pain is recognized to result from numerous conditions or injuries on the lumbar spine, muscle strains such as a quadratus lumborum muscle strain, are believed to be a leading cause for the recognizable symptoms of pain and discomfort.
The quadratus lumborum muscle is a sizable muscle in the shape of a triangle, located deep on each respective side of the lower back. The role of the wide muscular tissue is to grant mobility to the lumbar spine in sequence for the torso to move laterally from side to side as well as extend and stabilize the lower spine to improve posture. When this muscle is strained or pulled, the symptoms can restrict movement on the lower back and since the muscular tissue is so extensive, recovery from this type of injury usually requires more time and patience to fully heal.

Achilles Tendon Injury

Achilles tendonitis is a medical term used to describe a condition resulting in irritation of the large tendon, the Achilles tendon. Found in the back of the ankle, this condition is recognized as a common cause for injury among athletes. Excessive use of the Achilles tendon results in inflammation together with swelling and pain.
The development of Achilles tendonitis can be associated with two important factors, most frequently among athletes, which are, lack of flexibility and over-pronation. With age, the tendons will begin to lose flexibility, just the same as other tissues in the body. This change causes the tendons to become more rigid and more vulnerable to injury. For some people, the ankle may roll too far downward and inward with each step they take. This is called over-pronation, which places more stress on the tendons and ligaments of the foot, contributing to injury if not corrected.
Achilles tendonitis may also develop from other factors. An increase in an athlete’s …

5 Common Causes for Shoulder Pain

The shoulders are the most mobile joints in the human body. Because the ball of the humerus is designed to be larger than the shoulder socket that holds it, the shoulders need to be supported by muscles, tendons, and ligaments to secure them in a stable or natural position. Since the shoulder can be unstable, it is often a site for many common complications. Below are 5 common causes of shoulder pain and their associated symptoms.
Rotator Cuff Tear
Rotator cuff tears within the shoulder are a very common type of shoulder injury. The rotator cuff consists of a set of four muscles: the supraspinatus, the infraspinatus, the subscapularis, and the teres minor. All of these muscles are attached to the bones of the shoulders by tendons, which purspose is to support, stabilize, and grant the arm movement to move up, down and rotate. The rotator cuff ensures that the arm remains in the shoulder socket. Damage or injury from an accident or gradual wear and tear can result in inflammation to t…
