In between the vertebrae of the spine, there is a jelly like substance (a disc) that helps absorb shock. Herniated discs are a common injury after a car accident. The symptoms of a herniated disc can take weeks or sometimes even months to appear.
Unfortunately due to the financial implications of an auto accident, insurance companies are quick to blame it on aging. This may not be the case. You can find out for sure by visiting with a chiropractor after your car accident. Dr. Wilson can use precise diagnostic tests to determine the cause of your herniated disc.
It is worth noting that aging is a leading cause of herniated discs. In Florida, around 40 percent of adults over the age of 40 suffer from abnormal disc issues. Back pain is one of the leading causes of people missing work.
There are plenty of reasons to visit your local chiropractor if you are suffering from herniated disc symptoms. Epic Chiropractic and Wellness has two clinics in Brandon and Gibsonton. FL.
