Back Pain is a common condition after an auto injury and it's something that Dr. Holland sees often in our Downtown St. Louis, MO office.
Why is back pain such a common problem after a car accident? How can your chiropractor help you recover?
Let's look at the root cause of back pain after an auto collision and see how chiropractic care can help.
During a rear-end motor vehicle accident, your car and car seat are quickly 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. This kind of injury can cause chronic back pain if not treated promptly. Fortunately, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.
