We manage many auto injury cases in in our Aloha / Beaverton, OR office, and a widespread symptom we see in our patients is back pain. Chiropractic care is an excellent way to treat back pain. Let's look at how back pain is caused by a crash and how Oregon Medical Centers can help you.
During a rear-end motor vehicle accident, your car and car seat are quickly 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 lower 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 movement can sprain or strain the tissues that hold your spine together. This type of injury 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 is here to help. The first step is to get an accurate diagnosis to determine what's causing your pain and then we will determine an appropriate treatment plan of action.
