Automobile Injury Treatment in Houston
Car accidents represent a large percentage of serious back injury cases in the United States. Houston is a leader in car crashes.
The stress put on the spinal column in a car collision can cause a disc that separates your vertebrae to shift. As a result, the disc may press into the spinal canal and press against spinal nerves, producing severe back, neck and leg pain. If left untreated, serious back problems may lead to chronic pain, which results in lost productivity at work and an overall decrease in patients' quality of life.
