Back Pain and Car Crashes

Back Pain is a common condition after a car accident, and it's something that Sweeney Chiropractic sees often in our Nashville office. Chiropractic can be very helpful for back pain symptoms after a crash. Let's see what causes back pain and why chiropractic works.

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 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 motion can sprain or strain the structures 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.

Let us help you recover from back pain. Sweeney Chiropractic has helped many patients with the same condition, and we can probably help you, too.
