We work with many auto injury cases in in our Shoreview, MN office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is back pain. Let's take a look at why back pain is frequently experienced after a car crash and see how chiropractic can help you get better.
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 curvature of your spinal column, the seat can put uneven 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 motion can sprain or strain the ligaments that hold your spine together. This kind of injury can cause chronic back pain if not treated promptly. Fortunately, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.
