Hip and Leg Pain Following Car Accident

While many patients experience neck, shoulder, and back pain after an accident, hip and leg pain are also quite common post post-accident injuries. An auto collision can result in hip, pelvis, and leg injuries that leave you with pain and decreased mobility. Permanent injuries can result if not evaluated and treated quickly by a healthcare practitioner.

Why Does My Thigh Hurt After A Collision?

Thigh pain after a car accident can stem from a pinched sciatic nerve resulting from the force of the collision. It can also be a soft tissue injury. Some victims report fractured femur bones from the pressure applied to the leg, causing a break.

Common Accident Injuries

Some of the common hip and leg pain related injuries resulting from a car or truck accident include dislocations, bruises, fractures, strains, resulting in pain, numbness, and loss of mobility. In some cases, the patients may feel like their pain may not have been caused by an injury directly to the hip or leg, so an accurate and speedy diagnosis by a qualified healthcare provider is essential. While dislocations and fractures require immediate medical treatment, other injuries causing leg and hip pain may not be noticed until several days after the accident. These injuries are important to have evaluated and experienced accident doctor is a good place to start.

Car Accident Impacts

The hip, a ball and socket joint, allows rotation of the pelvis and the bending movement of the upper leg. The impact of an auto accident may result in injury specifically to the hip. In some cases, the impact of the crash may push the head of the thighbone out and back, causing a dislocation. It’s also possible for impact to result in fractures in the hip or pelvis, which can take a significant amount of time to heal.

Leg Injuries

Auto accidents may cause injury to the legs. Some common injuries to the legs that may result in serious leg pain include hyperextension of knee ligaments, a stretched or torn ACL, PCL damage, dislocated knees, and ruptured tendons.

Common Causes: Collision Or Back Injuries

When accident victims experience hip and leg pain after a car collision, this pain is often caused by back injuries. Misalignment of the spine or other extremities after an automobile accident may cause dysfunction and pain within the hip, the legs, or both. Strains of the muscles in the back, pelvis, and hip areas can also result in spasms and pain. In some cases, medications may help treat symptoms temporarily, but this does not solve the root problem that is causing the condition.

How Doctors Help Restore Wellness

If you’re dealing with this condition, you may want to consider seeing a qualified doctor who has experience treating automotive related accident injuries. Seek a physician who has established success in designing a personalized healthcare treatment program to improve wellness and mobility loss by using gentle adjustments to restore normal function to the muscles and joints. Dr. Bearden is trained on the Palmer Technique which he opts to use in many cases.

Dr. Bearden has worked with accident victims for more than two decades and understands how to pinpoint the cause of injuries and design an effective treatment plan for each patient.

If you are searching for auto accident injury treatment in Nashville, then you should give them a call. I was grappling with so much neck pain for nearly a year after my accident. Tried so many approaches whether its physical therapy, medicines or massage but all of them were only short term relief. Within a short period of time, I could tell an enormous breakthrough with my pain levels and after 2 and a half months was off my meds and sleeping well again. Only wish I found them sooner.

From the years of strenuous workout of power lifting and squats, my spine was exhausted. After months of suffering with chronic, re-occuring pain, I scheduled an appointment with their center. Right off the bat, they addressed all of my concerns re: Insurance and ability to pay and what to expect from one week to the next. After a month of treatment I was back in the gym at a capacity I hadn’t achieved for several years. I am optimistic this has saved me from future back surgery and having to resort to pain management. I tell everybody at my gym to try this first before resorting to other dangerous methods recommended to me by the other people.

2 years ago, I was brutally hit by a car which caused me immense neck pain and sciatica. Dr. Bearden and Dr. Josh were great at fixingmy spinal alignment with their gentle traction method and rehab. I was lucky to find them and hopefully avoid any future chronic pain down the road.

Their spinal decompression therapy ended up being the best therapy for my grandfather. In fact, he wasn’t able to sit properly and donormal work around the house. But because of these great folks, he is now doing everything on his own without any support of a family member.

I found this clinic after being turned away from my regular doctors office because of “third party pay” after my car accident. Their Insurance dep’t was helpful in assisting me with resolving my case so that I could focus on my health and overall recovery.

Nashville accident and injury center treatment plans are quite easy to follow for treating the pain and ache in the body. I went to this doctor at the hard time of Covid; each and every staff member had taken a proper precaution while wearing a masks and gloves. Overall I am impressed with the careful measures they have taken. Within a few sessions, they reduced the back problem from my back and neck. It was an effective treatment and I strongly referring them high enough.
