If you are dealing with back pain after an auto injury, don't worry. Dr. Mark Holland sees this type of problem very often in our North County, St. Louis, MO office. Let's see why back pain is frequently experienced after a car crash and see how chiropractic care can help you recover.
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 curvature 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 movement can sprain or strain the ligaments that hold your spine together. This kind of injury can cause chronic back pain if not treated right away. Fortunately, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.
