If you are suffering from back pain after an auto injury, you're not alone. Dr. Ernst sees this type of condition frequently in our Arlington office. Chiropractic is a great way to treat back pain. Let's look at how back pain is caused by a crash and how Dr. Ernst can help you.
During a rear-end auto collision, your car and car seat are quickly accelerated forward against your torso. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curve of your back, 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 type of injury can cause chronic back pain if not treated promptly. Fortunately, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.
Dr. Ernst is here in Arlington to help you recover from back pain. We've been helping patients since 1990 and we can probably help you, too. The first step is to get an accurate diagnosis to determine what's causing your pain and then we will determine an appropriate treatment strategy.
