We treat many auto injury cases in our Tumwater office and a common symptom we see in our patients is back pain.
Why is back pain such a common problem after an auto injury? How can chiropractic care help you recover?
Let's look at the root cause of back pain after an accident 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 spinal column, 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 motion can sprain or strain the ligaments that hold your spine together. These types of injuries can cause chronic back pain if not treated promptly. Fortunately, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.
You don't have to suffer from back pain. Dr. Harrell is conveniently located in Tumwater to help you recover, whether you've been in a car crash or not.
