If you have back pain after a car crash, don't despair. Dr. Michael Wagner D.C. sees this type of problem frequently in our Alexandria, KY office. Chiropractic can be very helpful for back pain symptoms after a crash. Let's see what causes back pain and why chiropractic works.
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 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 tissues that hold your spine together. This kind of injury can cause chronic back pain if not treated right away. Fortunately, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.
