Back Pain is a common symptom after an auto collision, and it's something that Dr. Palmer sees frequently in our Depew office. Let's take a look at why back pain is frequently experienced after an auto injury and see how chiropractic can help you get better.
During a rear-end auto collision, 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 seat can put inconsistent force 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 kind 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.
If you've been injured in a car crash and you're suffering from back pain, Dr. Palmer is here to help. First, we'll do a careful examination to determine the root cause of your problem, and then decide how to restore your body's natural functioning.
