We manage many auto injury cases in in our Lincoln office, and a widespread symptom we see in our patients is back pain. Let's take a look at why back pain is frequently experienced after an auto injury and see how your chiropractor can help you recover.
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 curvature of your spine, the car 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 tissues that hold your spine together. This type of injury can cause chronic back pain if not treated promptly. Fortunately, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.
If you've been hurt in a car crash and you're suffering from back pain, Dr. Kallio 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 approach. Ready to make an appointment?
