Back Pain and Car Accidents
We treat many auto injury cases in in our Downtown St. Louis, MO office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is back pain. Let's look at the root cause of back pain after an accident and see how chiropractic can help.
During a rear-end auto collision, your car and car seat are rapidly accelerated forward against your body. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curve of your spine, 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 right away. Fortunately, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.
