Back Pain is a common problem after a car crash, and it's something that Dr. Holcombe sees often in our Arlington, VA office. Let's look at the root cause of back pain after an auto collision and see how chiropractic care can help.
During a rear-end car crash, your car and car seat are quickly accelerated forward against your body. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curve of your spine, the seat can put uneven 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 type 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. Dr. Holcombe has helped many people with the same condition, and we can probably help you, too. The first step is to get an accurate diagnosis to determine what's causing your pain and then we will determine an appropriate treatment approach.
