If you have back pain after an auto collision, you're not alone. Dr. Russell and Dr. Janda sees this type of condition very often in our Henderson, NV office. Let's take a look at why back pain is frequently experienced after a car crash and see how your chiropractor can help you get better.
During a rear-end motor vehicle accident, your car and car seat are rapidly accelerated forward against your torso. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curve of your back, the car 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 ligaments 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.
