Lower back pain is a common condition experienced by people injured in car accidents.

Muscle Strains

The lower back provides stability to the upper part of the body. Depending on the location of the muscle strain, a victim may not be able to perform strenuous physical activity after the injury. The most common treatment for lower back injuries is rest and pain medications. Patients are generally advised not to perform any physical activities for a few days or even weeks to aid healing.

Herniated Disc

Some victims suffer Spondylolisthesis after a car accident. This occurs when there is a fracture in the vertebra that causes it to slip out of its place. Spondylolisthesis is treated the same way as a herniated disc and more serious cases may require spinal fusion surgery.
