Back Pain and Car Accidents

If you have back pain after an auto collision, don't despair. Dr. Mark Holland sees this type of condition frequently in our North County, St. Louis, MO office. Why is back pain such a common problem after an auto collision? How can chiropractic care help you get better?

During a rear-end car crash, your car and car seat are quickly accelerated forward against your body. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curvature of your spine, the seat can put uneven pressure on your 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. This type of injury can cause chronic back pain if not treated promptly. Thankfully, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.

You don't have to suffer from back pain. Dr. Mark Holland is conveniently located in North County, St. Louis, MO to help you heal, whether you've been in an auto collision or not.
