Tag: herniated disc

The primary goal of medical treatment after a car accident is to relieve pain and other symptoms caused by the herniated disc.

Typically, most herniated discs occur in the low back (lumbar). However, there are many factors that determine the type and severity of a person’s injuries after a car accident. 

When a person is in a car accident, the forces of whipping the body back and forth in the vehicle can put serious strain on the spinal column. This pressure can cause a part of the spine (the disc) to move out of place or even rupture.
