We treat many car accident cases in our Asheville office and a common symptom we see in our patients is back pain.
What causes back pain after a car crash? How can a chiropractor help?
Let's look at the root cause of back pain after a car accident and see how chiropractic can help.
During a rear-end auto collision, your car and car seat are quickly accelerated forward against your body. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curve of your spine, the seat can put inconsistent pressure 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 motion can sprain or strain the tissues that hold your spine together. These types of injuries can cause chronic back pain if not treated promptly. 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 problem, and we can probably help you, too.
