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 look at the root cause of back pain after an accident and see how chiropractic 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 curve of your spinal column, the car seat can put inconsistent force on your 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 type of injury 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. Weinberg is here to help.
