Back Pain is a common condition after a car crash, and it's something that Dr. Wallace sees frequently in our San Angelo office. Let's take a look at why back pain is frequently experienced after an auto collision and see how your chiropractor can help you recover.
During a rear-end motor vehicle accident, your car and car seat are quickly accelerated forward against your torso. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curvature of your spine, 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 tissues 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.
If you've been injured in a car crash and you're experiencing back pain, Dr. Wallace is here to help. First, we'll do a careful evaluation to figure out the root cause of your problem, and then decide how to restore your body's natural functioning.
