Back Pain and Car Crashes

We manage many auto injury cases in in our Aloha office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is back pain. What causes back pain after a car crash? How can chiropractic care help?

During a rear-end motor vehicle accident, 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 car seat can put uneven 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 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.

Let us help you recover from back pain. First Choice Chiropractic & Rehab has helped many patients with the same condition, and we can probably help you, too. First Choice Chiropractic & Rehab will first determine what's causing your pain and then work to restore your body to its natural functioning.
