One of the most common complaints after a car accident is back pain. Your spine, as one of the most complex and longest bone groups in your body, often bears the brunt of the force in a car accident. While some back pain goes away after a few hours or days, other times back pain can last for weeks or longer and can be much more serious than it appears. This can be an indication that you have a back injury.

These 5 types of back injuries are the most common after a car accident.
Generally speaking, you should always seek medical attention after a car accident, whether you feel pain or not. Sometimes, it may take hours or days to feel any symptoms from certain injuries. If you do not get treated immediately after a car accident, it may affect both your recovery time and quality, as well as your claim against the party at fault. However, for a back injury in particular, your Primary Care Doctor may not be the best choice. Instead, seek medical care from a specialist who has the training to diagnose and treat spine, joint, and musculoskeletal issues after a car accident.
If you need help finding a medical specialist who deals with back injuries after a car accident, here are some resources you can use.
Your recovery time will depend on the severity and type of the back injury you have sustained. For more minor injuries, such as soft tissue injuries, you should start to feel much better in a few days, with complete recovery within 3 months. For more serious injuries, recovery could take months or years, and for the most serious types of back injuries, recovery may not be possible.
