We work with many auto injury cases in in our Smyrna, GA office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is back pain. Let's take a look at why back pain is commonly experienced after an auto collision and see how chiropractic care can help you get better.
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 curve of your back, 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. These types of injuries can cause chronic back pain if not treated right away. Thankfully, 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. Weinberg is here to help. The first step is to get an accurate diagnosis to determine what's causing your pain and then we will determine an appropriate treatment strategy.
