We manage many car accident cases in in our Prescott office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is back pain. Let's look at why back pain is commonly experienced after an auto injury and see how chiropractic can help you get better.
During a rear-end auto collision, your car and car seat are quickly accelerated forward against your torso. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curve of your spinal column, the seat can put uneven pressure 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 movement can sprain or strain the ligaments that hold your spine together. This kind of injury can cause chronic back pain if not treated promptly. Thankfully, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.
