If you are suffering from back pain after an auto collision, you're not alone. Dr. Palmer sees this type of problem very often in our Depew office. Chiropractic care is a great way to treat back pain. Let's look at how back pain is caused by a crash and how Dr. Palmer can help you.
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 curvature of your spinal column, the car seat can put inconsistent pressure 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 motion can sprain or strain the tissues that hold your spine together. These types of injuries can cause chronic back pain if not treated promptly. Thankfully, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.
Let us help you recover from back pain. Dr. Palmer has helped many people with the same condition, and we can probably help you, too.
