If you suffer from back pain after an auto injury, don't worry. Dr. Linton sees this type of condition frequently in our Mt Sterling office. Why is back pain such a common condition after an auto collision? How can your chiropractor help you get better?
During a rear-end motor vehicle accident, your car and car seat are quickly accelerated forward against your torso. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curve of your spinal column, the seat can put uneven 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 structures 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.
If you've been hurt in a car crash and you're struggling with back pain, Dr. Linton is here to help. The first step is to get an accurate diagnosis to determine what's causing your symptoms and then we will determine an appropriate treatment strategy.
