Back Pain and Car Accidents

Back Pain is a common symptom after an auto injury, and it's something that Dr. Kallio sees often in our Lincoln office. Let's look at the root cause of back pain after a car crash and see how chiropractic care can help.

During a rear-end auto collision, your car and car seat are rapidly accelerated forward against your torso. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curvature of your back, the car seat can put inconsistent 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 structures that hold your spine together. This kind 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.
