Back Pain and Auto Injury

Back Pain is a common problem after a car accident, and it's something that Dr. Mark Holland sees frequently in our North County, St. Louis, MO office. Chiropractic care is a great way to treat back pain. Let's look at how back pain is caused by a crash and how Dr. Mark Holland can help you.

During a rear-end motor vehicle accident, your car and car seat are rapidly 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 ligaments that hold your spine together. This kind 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.

Dr. Mark Holland is here in North County, St. Louis, MO to help you recover from back pain. We've been helping patients since 2000 and we can probably help you, too.
