If you are dealing with back pain after a car crash, don't despair. Dr. Ernst sees this type of condition very often in our Arlington office. Let's look at the root cause of back pain after an auto injury and see how chiropractic can help.
During a rear-end motor vehicle accident, your car and car seat are rapidly accelerated forward against your body. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curve of your back, the car 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 ligaments that hold your spine together. These types of injuries can cause chronic back pain if not treated promptly. Fortunately, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.
You don't have to suffer from back pain. Dr. Ernst is conveniently located in Arlington to help you get better, whether you've been in an auto collision or not. First, we'll do a careful examination to establish the root cause of your problem, and then decide how to restore your body's natural functioning.
