Back Pain is a common symptom after an auto collision, and it's something that Gadsden Family Chiropractic sees frequently in our Gadsden, AL office. Let's look at the root cause of back pain after a car accident and see how your chiropractor can help.
During a rear-end car crash, 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 inconsistent pressure 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 right away. Thankfully, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.
If you've been hurt in a car crash and you're struggling with back pain, Gadsden Family Chiropractic is here to help. First, we'll do a careful evaluation to determine the root cause of your pain, and then decide how to restore your body's natural functioning. Ready to make an appointment?
