Pelvic Pain Connected To Back Pain After Car Crash
(LOS ANGELES, CA)
I was in a car accident one month and a half ago but started having pelvic hip pain and lower back pain.
Is this connected with my car accident is it possible for back pain to affect the pelvic area??
I had a pelvic manual exam and the gp said its not my reproductive organs I'm very concerned....
I don't know whether it's connected to the car accident, but depending on what the crash looked like, it wouldn't be surprising.
The pelvis is connected to the spine and sacrum.
For instance, if you were standing on the brakes with one leg pushing forward, the other leg tense but pulling backwards, and then there was an impact, you can essentially knock one or both sides of your pelvis out of alignment from themselves as well as from the sacrum, spinal alignment, etc. This can mess up muscle balance as well.
You could have ligament injury, and or gotten Whiplash and/or Tendonitis.
It's ALL connected.
