Back Pain is a common symptom after a car accident, and it's something that Oregon Medical Centers PC sees frequently in our Aloha / Beaverton, OR office. What causes back pain after an auto collision? How can chiropractic help?
During a rear-end car crash, your car and car seat are quickly accelerated forward against your body. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curve of your back, the car 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 promptly. Fortunately, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.
If you've been hurt in a car crash and you're struggling with back pain, Oregon Medical Centers PC is here to help.
