One of the most common injuries received in any form of auto accidents are neck and back injuries. These injuries can manifest and settle in many different ways depending on the severity of the accident, but no one should downplay their pain, even if you feel it’s not too serious. Because of the fact that people have varying ranges of pain tolerance, physicians may feel a neck or back injury is less severe than it really is, resulting in lack of treatment, or wrong treatment all together.
An effective way that the medical field has been able to reduce the amount of misdiagnoses on neck and back injuries is through the use of MRIs, CT scans, X-Rays, bone scans and myelograms. All of these are common procedures that many patients whom are complaining of neck and/or back pain undergo.
