If you have back pain after an auto collision, you're not alone. Dr. William Palmer sees this type of condition frequently in our Depew / Lancaster office. Why is back pain such a common problem after a car crash? How can chiropractic care help you heal?
During a rear-end motor vehicle accident, your car and car seat are quickly accelerated forward against your body. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curve of your back, the seat can put uneven 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 tissues 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.
You don't have to suffer from back pain. Dr. William Palmer is conveniently located in Depew / Lancaster to help you get better, whether you've been in a car crash or not. 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. Ready to make an appointment?
