If you have back pain after a car crash, don't despair. Dr. Mark Holland sees this type of condition very often in our North County St. Louis, MO office. Let's look at the root cause of back pain after a car accident and see how chiropractic can help.
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 back, the car seat can put inconsistent 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 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.
