Back Pain is a common symptom after an auto collision, and it's something that Robert C Slater, DC sees frequently in our Highland Park, Saint Paul, Minnesota office. What causes back pain after an auto collision? How can chiropractic care help?
During a rear-end auto collision, 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 inconsistent pressure 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. 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.
