Back Pain is a common condition after a car crash, 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 help?
During a rear-end auto collision, your car and car seat are rapidly accelerated forward against your body. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curve of your spinal column, 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 motion can sprain or strain the tissues that hold your spine together. These types of injuries can cause chronic back pain if not treated right away. Fortunately, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.
