Carpentersville, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/13/2014 -- No matter how many times they happen car accidents are almost a always a terrifying ordeal. From the initial shock of the collision, to the assessment of damage to both the cars and people involved (not necessarily in that order), to who is to blame and whose going to pay for this? Almost everything is a straightforward process. However, if there is the slightest suspicion that any long-term health injuries may have occurred, it is always best to see a doctor – if not an emergency. Sometimes the long-term health damage from a car accident whether big or small is not realized immediately. This is why it’s always best to consult a physician for a physical assessment if there is even the slightest possibility of injury.
If back pain occurs immediately after the accident, a physician’s recommendations for treatment should be followed. If back pain persists long after an accident during & after the physicians recommended treatments, then there are several common sense things people can do to help relieve the back pain incurred during the accident. Here they are:
#1. If the doctor has prescribed rest, then rest.
#2. If the doctor says its OK to resume light physical activity, then resume light physical activity. The worse thing one can do at this point is continue to remain inactive because the skeletal system and joints (including the vertebrae of the back) desperately need to move after a bout of inactivity. Movement heats up muscles, improves circulation, joint hydration, and joint lubrication (vertebrae are joints).
#3. If the doctor says it’s OK to resume normal or intense physical activity then, by all means, do so. Once again, stay inactive and lightly inactive when at full strength is one of the worse things that can be done to prevent pain because muscles, joints and ligaments become stiff. In the case of a care accident, when the body receives a sudden jolt, it is very important for the body’s moving parts to “work” themselves back into normal alignment.
#4. Once able to return to normal and physical then it’s a great idea to use the BODY-ALINE back strengthening and posture correction exercise machine. The BODY ALINE strengthens back muscles and realigns the spine in one easy motion to keep the back strong and in proper alignment. If weak back muscles and associated poor posture are the proven root causes of most back pain, then this machine is the common sense approach to relieving most types of back pain – even after a car accident.
