We work with many auto injury cases in in our North County, St. Louis, MO office, and a widespread symptom we see in our patients is back pain. Let's take a look at why back pain is commonly experienced after a car crash and see how your chiropractor can help you get better.
During a rear-end motor vehicle accident, your car and car seat are rapidly accelerated forward against your torso. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curve of your spinal column, 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 motion can sprain or strain the structures that hold your spine together. These types of injuries can cause chronic back pain if not treated promptly. Fortunately, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.
