If you are dealing with back pain after a car accident, don't worry. Dr. Russell sees this type of condition frequently in our Henderson office. Let's take a look at why back pain is commonly experienced after an auto collision and see how chiropractic care can help you recover.
During a rear-end car crash, your car and car seat are quickly accelerated forward against your body. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curvature of your spinal column, 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. Thankfully, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.
If you've been hurt in a car crash and you're struggling with back pain, Dr. Russell is here to help. First, we'll do a careful examination to establish the root cause of your pain, and then decide how to restore your body's natural functioning.
