We treat many car accident cases in in our Wilsonville, OR office, and a widespread symptom we see in our patients is back pain. 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 body. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curve of your back, 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. This kind 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.
