Back Pain and Car Accidents

We treat many auto injury cases in in our Arlington, VA office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is back pain. Let's look at the root cause of back pain after a car crash and see how chiropractic can 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 curvature of your spine, the car seat can put inconsistent 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 right away. Fortunately, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.
