If you suffer from back pain after a car accident, you're not alone. Dr. Holland sees this type of condition frequently in our St. Louis, MO office. Chiropractic is a great way to treat back pain. Let's look at how back pain is caused by a crash and how Dr. Holland can help you.
During a rear-end auto collision, your car and car seat are quickly accelerated forward against your torso. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curve of your spine, the seat can put uneven force on your lower 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 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.
