We treat many auto injury cases in in our Depew office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is back pain. Let's take a look at why back pain is commonly experienced after an auto collision and see how your chiropractor can help you recover.
During a rear-end auto collision, 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 movement can sprain or strain the ligaments that hold your spine together. These types of injuries can cause chronic back pain if not treated right away. Thankfully, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.
You don't have to suffer from back pain. Dr. Palmer is conveniently located in Depew to help you get better, whether you've been in a car crash or not.
