If you have back pain after a car crash, you're not alone. Drs. Matt & Annie Reyes sees this type of problem frequently in our State College, PA office. What causes back pain after a car crash? How can chiropractic help?
During a rear-end car crash, your car and car seat are rapidly accelerated forward against your torso. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curve of your back, the car seat can put inconsistent 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 structures 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.
