We treat many car accident cases in our North County St. Louis, MO office and a common symptom we see in our patients is back pain.
Why is back pain such a common condition after an auto collision? How can your chiropractor help you heal?
Chiropractic care is an excellent way to treat back pain. Let's look at how back pain is caused by a crash and how Dr. Holland can help you.
During a rear-end car crash, your car and car seat are rapidly accelerated forward against your torso. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curve of your spine, 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 ligaments that hold your spine together. This type 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.
You don't have to suffer from back pain. Dr. Holland is conveniently located in North County St. Louis, MO to help you recover, whether you've been in a car crash or not.
