  • How To Deal With Sciatica Pain After A Car Accident

    July 30, 2018

    Car accidents result in a variety of injuries. Some of them are serious and immediately visible and the treatment has to be given at once. Other injuries may be less visible, or the symptoms appear after a time lapse.

    A good example is neck and back problems that follow car accidents. Even if your car was traveling at slow speeds and the impact was not very severe, the body may jerk in different directions and cause stress/strain to these areas. Based on your age and general health condition, the healing process can be short or long.

    What is Sciatica pain?

    Sciatica pain happens because of injury or damage to the sciatic nerve. It is the longest in the body, starting at the hip area and runs all the way down to your legs and feet. Radiating pain is felt commonly on the back of the legs. The condition of “sciatica” describes a variety of pains, ranging from dull aches to acute and intense bursts of pain. Tingling, numbness and weakness of the legs and back may be there. If you’re employed in a sedentary or desk job, sciatic pain can become more severe. Patients in the age group of 30-50 are most prone to this condition. Diabetes is also a contributory factor. In extreme cases, loss of bowel and bladder function may occur.

    Early intervention is essential. Pain can be treated with OTC painkillers and physical therapy, exercise, hot and cold therapy. Stronger pain-management is recommended for serious cases, along with spinal steroid injections, surgery etc.

    It’s important to contact an experienced car accident lawyer immediately, to ensure that you receive satisfactory compensation for your injuries and losses.
