Back Pain and Car Crashes

Back Pain is a common symptom after a car crash, and it's something that Blake Chiropractic & Rehabilitation sees often in our Harrisburg office. Chiropractic care is an excellent way to treat back pain. Let's look at how back pain is caused by a crash and how Blake Chiropractic & Rehabilitation can help you.

During a rear-end auto collision, your car and car seat are rapidly accelerated forward against your torso. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curvature of your spinal column, the 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.

Blake Chiropractic & Rehabilitation has been helping patients in Harrisburg since 1983, so we know what you're experiencing. We're here to 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 strategy. Ready to make an appointment?
