During a crash, your body is subjected to large forces that it simply wasn't built to handle. These forces place strain and stresses on your neck, shoulder, and back and can actually cause injury to the ligaments that hold your spine together. A crash can cause a wide variety of painful symptoms including neck pain, back pain, headaches, symptoms in the arms and/or legs and even post-traumatic concussion syndrome.
Radiating Pain from Whiplash Radicular pain, or radiating pain, is triggered by obstruction or squeezing of the spinal nerves. This causes you to have pain, tingling, or numbness in areas of your body far from the real origin of the problem. If your spine is damaged during a motor vehicle accident there are a variety of things that can affect the nerves. Damaged ligaments and muscular tissues can cause inflammation of the nerve root, which can alter the performance of the nerve. If a spinal disc is injured, it can cause the disc to protrude or herniate, pinching the nerve. And if the spinal joints begin to calcify, it can cause spinal stenosis, or a narrowing of the passage that the spinal nerves travel through. The answer to eliminating radicular pain is to pinpoint the exact origin of the problem causing the compression and then work to relieve the pressure on the nerve. If you've been in a motor vehicle accident and have symptoms of radicular pain, Dr. Sandels is here to help. We can help establish the root cause of your problem and formulate a plan of action to help you restore your health.
