Personal injuries and back pain are typical among adults in car accidents. Back pain has an impact on over fifty percent of working adults each and every year, is the number one cause of missed work in the United States, and can have an impact on up to eighty percent of the adult population at some point in their lives.

Personal Injury Sprains, Strains and Spasms in the Back can cause Personal Injury Headaches


This is typically the source of low back pain among the weekend warriors, which is when it is easier to snap back into shape, but throw a car accident into the mix and you have a different situation entirely.  Those who do not normally have a lot of physical activity during the week, only to exert a lot of physical activity once the weekend arrives, after a car accident will find they are dealing with symptoms that do not go away and they are not able to push themselves too much. They may find themselves lying flat on their backs watching the clock for their chiropractor to be in the office.  Even normally overworking your muscles or ligaments in your low back may lead to small tears in your tissues, becoming swollen, painful, and tight, on top of all your symptoms from your car accident.

Personal Injury Headaches plus Stress

Whenever you become stressed, your body responds by increasing your blood pressure and heart rate, flooding your body with stress hormones and tightening up your muscles.  When you are stressed all the time, the chronic tension is responsible for your muscles to become sore, weak and loaded with trigger points.  If you are stressed out all of the time and you have low back pain, it is important to do some relaxation exercises, like deep breathing, as well as to get regular exercise.

General Personal Injury Headaches

General personal injury headaches are the most typical after a car accident, affecting upwards of 75 percent of all personal injury accident victims. Most people with personal injury headaches, describe a personal injury headache as a constant dull, achy feeling either on one side or both sides of the head, frequently described as a feeling of a tight band or dull ache around the head or behind the eyes.  These personal injury headaches usually begin slowly and gradually and may last for minutes or days, and lean to begin in the middle or toward the end of the day. General personal injury headaches are bad enough but are frequently made worse by stress or bad posture, which stresses the spine and muscles in the upper back and neck.
