If you are suffering from back pain after a car accident, you're not alone. Dr. Ernst sees this type of condition very often in our Arlington office. Let's take a look at why back pain is frequently experienced after an auto collision and see how chiropractic can help you get better.
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 curvature 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 movement can sprain or strain the structures that hold your spine together. This type 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.
Let us help you recover from back pain. Dr. Ernst has helped many people with the same problem, and we can probably help you, too.
