We treat many car accident cases in in our Henderson, NV office, and a widespread symptom we see in our patients is back pain. Chiropractic is an effective way to treat back pain. Let's look at how back pain is caused by a crash and how Dr. Russell can help you.
During a rear-end car crash, your car and car seat are rapidly accelerated forward against your torso. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curve of your spinal column, the car seat can put uneven 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 motion can sprain or strain the tissues that hold your spine together. This kind of injury can cause chronic back pain if not treated promptly. Fortunately, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.
