Back Pain and Car Accidents

Back Pain is a common condition after a car crash, and it's something that Dr. Myers sees frequently in our Asheville office. Chiropractic is an effective way to treat back pain. Let's look at how back pain is caused by a crash and how Dr. Myers can help you.

During a rear-end auto collision, your car and car seat are quickly accelerated forward against your torso. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curve of your back, the seat can put inconsistent force on your lower back. This can cause some of your spinal vertebrae to move in one direction while an adjacent vertebrae might move in another direction. This differential movement can sprain or strain the ligaments that hold your spine together. This type of injury can cause chronic back pain if not treated right away. Thankfully, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.

Let us help you recover from back pain. Dr. Myers has helped many patients with the same condition, and we can probably help you, too. First, we'll do a careful examination to determine the root cause of your problem, and then decide how to restore your body's natural functioning.
