Low Back and Leg Pain

Facet Joint & Disc Injury

Low Back and Leg Pain

If you've been in a car accident and are experiencing low back and leg pain, you're not alone. At Pain Practice Solutions, with our dedicated locations in Idaho and Utah, we often treat individuals who have suffered from vehicular collisions. Such impacts can lead to a range of injuries, and two common sources of post-accident pain are injuries to the facet joints and intervertebral discs. 

 

Facet Joint Strain and Injury

Facet joints are small joints located at each segment of the spine that provide stability and facilitate motion. They can become injured during a car accident due to abrupt movements, leading to pain and inflammation.


Symptoms of Facet Joint Injury:

  • Localized lower back pain
  • Pain that may radiate into the buttocks or upper thigh
  • Difficulty twisting or bending the spine
  • Tenderness around the injured joint
  • Increased pain during periods of inactivity or rest

Treating Facet Joint Injury:

Our approach to facet joint injuries may include injections to reduce inflammation and alleviate pain. Our goal is to restore mobility and reduce pain without invasive procedures whenever possible.


Disc Injury:

Discs act as cushions between the vertebrae. A motor vehicle collision can cause these discs to herniate or rupture, leading to what is commonly known as a disc injury.


Symptoms of Disc Injury:

  • Sharp, shooting pain in the lower back
  • Pain that radiates down the legs, commonly referred to as sciatica
  • Numbness or tingling in the legs or feet
  • Muscle weakness and difficulty in movement
