If you are suffering from back pain after an auto collision, don't despair. Dr. Messerschmidt sees this type of condition frequently in our Juneau, AK office. 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 motor vehicle accident, your car and car seat are rapidly accelerated forward against your body. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curve of your spine, 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 motion can sprain or strain the tissues that hold your spine together. This type of injury can cause chronic back pain if not treated right away. Thankfully, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.
