Back Pain is a common problem after a car accident and it's something that Linton Spine & Joint Chiropractic Center sees often in our Mt Sterling office.
Why is back pain such a common symptom after an auto collision? How can chiropractic care help you recover?
Chiropractic is an effective way to treat back pain. Let's look at how back pain is caused by a crash and how Linton Spine & Joint Chiropractic Center can help you.
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 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 movement can sprain or strain the structures that hold your spine together. This type 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.
If you've been injured in a car crash and you're experiencing back pain, Linton Spine & Joint Chiropractic Center is here to help. The first step is to get an accurate diagnosis to determine what's causing your pain and then we will determine an appropriate treatment strategy.
