The term ‘back injury’ is a catch-all term that describes a broad range of injuries that you could be afflicted with. Some are more serious and more painful than others, but for men, a back injury and erectile dysfunction can be particularly difficult to deal with.
Back injuries can cause considerable swelling, whether they involve soft tissue injuries, impact injuries or other things. While it is rare to suffer from erectile dysfunction following a back injury, it is worth being aware of this. If you suddenly start to get problems following an injury to your back, you should see your GP, as it may be a symptom of the injury itself.
Problems with blood flow
If blood flow is compromised due to the injury – perhaps because of swelling around the site of the injury, for example – you could end up having problems in this area. This in turn can lead to emotional problems and a much longer recovery time. It is important to get advice from your GP if you experience this – it could lead to reduced symptoms and a better recovery.
It would be difficult to come to terms with something like this if you had an accident you were not to blame for. It doesn’t matter how that accident happened, only that someone else was found to be to blame for causing it. Just imagine how this might make you feel, especially when considering the fallout you experienced from the original injury. It could take time to come to terms with everything.
