We work with many car accident cases in our Depew office and a common symptom we see in our patients is back pain.
What causes back pain after an auto injury? How can chiropractic help?
Let's look at the root cause of back pain after an accident and see how chiropractic can help.
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 curvature of your spine, 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 ligaments that hold your spine together. These types of injuries can cause chronic back pain if not treated right away. Fortunately, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.
