Here’s the story...
A few months ago I was in a car accident. I was able to walk away a little sore but overall seemed uninjured. I’ve noticed since that my lower back area seems to have sustained some type of injury along the way. Day to day activities are pretty normal, and I haven’t noticed any constant pain/discomfort or decrease in range of motion.
My back can occasionally for lack of a better term feel “tight” in the past, I would normally lay on my side, raise my knee to my chest and I could get my back to pop.
Since the accident, I haven’t been able to do that the same way. If I try, it tends to be almost painful to attempt. I can run my hand along my spine and feel a few areas that are sore.
In the few times I have been able to get a pop, it’s been a a very minimal one and is accompanied by a shooting pain that suddenly radiates along the spine to my mid back section.
The doctor seems to think I should continue to ice it and take some NSAIDs. I’m thinking that there has to be some underlying damange.
Any thoughts from the community??
