If you are dealing with back pain after a car crash, don't despair. Dr. Holland sees this type of condition very often in our Downtown St. Louis, MO office. Let's look at why back pain is commonly experienced after an auto collision and see how your chiropractor can help you get better.
During a rear-end car crash, your car and car seat are rapidly accelerated forward against your body. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curvature 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 ligaments that hold your spine together. These types of injuries 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. Holland is conveniently located in Downtown St. Louis, MO to help you get better, whether you've been in a car crash or not. Dr. Holland will first determine what's causing your pain and then work to restore your body to its natural functioning. Ready to make an appointment?
