If you suffer from back pain after an auto injury, don't despair. Dr. Ernst sees this type of problem frequently in our Arlington, WA office. The key to recovering from back pain caused by a crash is to understand the root cause of the problem and how chiropractic care 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 spinal column, the 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 motion can sprain or strain the ligaments that hold your spine together. This type of injury can cause chronic back pain if not treated promptly. Thankfully, 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, WA to help you get better, whether you've been in a car crash or not.
