If you have back pain after an auto collision, you're not alone. Dr. Messerschmidt sees this type of condition frequently in our Juneau, AK office. Let's see why back pain is frequently experienced after an auto collision and see how chiropractic can help you get better.
During a rear-end motor vehicle accident, your car and car seat are quickly accelerated forward against your body. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curvature of your spinal column, the car seat can put inconsistent 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. Thankfully, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.
