We manage many auto injury cases in our Texarkana, Atlanta office and a widespread symptom we see in our patients is back pain.
Let's see why back pain is frequently experienced after a car crash and see how your chiropractor can help you get better
The key to recovering from back pain caused by a crash is to understand the root cause of the problem and how chiropractic care can help.
During a rear-end car crash, your car and car seat are rapidly accelerated forward against your torso. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curve of your spine, the 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. These types of injuries can cause chronic back pain if not treated right away. Fortunately, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.
If you've been injured in a car crash and you're suffering from back pain, Dr. Swanson is here to help. Dr. Swanson will first determine what's causing your pain and then work to restore your body to its natural functioning. Give our office a call today at (903) 792-2060 to make an appointment.
