We treat 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 look at why back pain is commonly experienced after an auto collision and see how chiropractic care can help you recover.
During a rear-end car crash, your car and car seat are rapidly accelerated forward against your body. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curve of your back, 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 promptly. Fortunately, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.
Let us help you recover from back pain. Dr. Mark Holland has helped many people with the same condition, and we can probably help you, too.
