We work with many auto injury cases in in our West Palm Beach office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is back pain. Why is back pain such a common condition after an auto collision? How can your chiropractor help you get better?
During a rear-end motor vehicle accident, your car and car seat are rapidly accelerated forward against your torso. 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 ligaments that hold your spine together. This kind 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.
Dr. Dennis is here in West Palm Beach to help you recover from back pain. We've been helping patients since 1988 and we can probably help you, too.
