If you are dealing with back pain after a car crash, you're not alone. Sweeney Chiropractic sees this type of problem very often in our Nashville office. What causes back pain after an auto injury? How can a chiropractor 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 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 movement 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 problem, and we can probably help you, too.
