Back Pain is a common symptom after a car accident, and it's something that Blake Chiropractic & Rehabilitation sees frequently in our Harrisburg 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 motor vehicle accident, your car and car seat are quickly accelerated forward against your torso. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curve of your back, the 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 tissues that hold your spine together. This type of injury can cause chronic back pain if not treated right away. Thankfully, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.
If you've been hurt in a car crash and you're experiencing back pain, Blake Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is here to help. First, we'll do a careful examination to establish the root cause of your problem, and then decide how to restore your body's natural functioning.
