Back Pain is a common problem after an auto collision and it's something that Dr. Wagner sees frequently in our Alexandria office.
Why is back pain such a common problem after a car accident? How can your chiropractor help you get better?
Chiropractic is a great way to treat back pain. Let's look at how back pain is caused by a crash and how Dr. Wagner can help you.
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 curve of your spinal column, the car seat can put uneven pressure 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 motion can sprain or strain the structures that hold your spine together. This kind of injury can cause chronic back pain if not treated promptly. 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 experiencing back pain, Dr. Wagner is here to help. The first step is to get an accurate diagnosis to determine what's causing your symptoms and then we will determine an appropriate treatment plan of action.
