We work with many auto injury cases in in our Parkland, FL office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is back pain. Let's see why back pain is commonly experienced after an auto injury and see how your chiropractor can help you recover.
During a rear-end motor vehicle accident, your car and car seat are quickly accelerated forward against your torso. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curvature 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 structures 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.

The first step is to get an accurate diagnosis to determine what's causing your symptoms and then we will determine an appropriate treatment approach.
