We manage many auto injury cases in in our Parkland, FL office, and a widespread symptom we see in our patients is back pain. The key to recovering from back pain caused by a crash is to understand the root cause of the problem and how chiropractic care can 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 spinal column, the car seat can put uneven force 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 motion can sprain or strain the ligaments 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.
