Back Pain and Car Accidents

We treat many car accident cases in in our Salem / Keizer, 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 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 spine, the car seat can put uneven 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 structures that hold your spine together. These types of injuries can cause chronic back pain if not treated promptly. Thankfully, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.

Let us help you recover from back pain. Oregon Medical Centers has helped many patients with the same problem, and we can probably help you, too. The first step is to get an accurate diagnosis to determine what's causing your pain and then we will determine an appropriate treatment approach. Call us today at (503) 390-1552 if you have questions or would like to make an appointment.
