Back Pain is a common symptom after an auto injury, and it's something that Dr. Marsh sees frequently in our West New York office. Chiropractic care & osteopathic treatments can be very helpful for back pain symptoms after a crash. Let's see what causes back pain and why chiropractic works.
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 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. These types of injuries can cause chronic back pain if not treated promptly. Fortunately, osteopathic treatments & 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, Dr. Marsh is here to help.
