We work with many car accident cases in in our Juneau, AK office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is back pain. Chiropractic is an effective way to treat back pain. Let's look at how back pain is caused by a crash and how Dr. Messerschmidt can help you.
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 curve of your spinal column, the car 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 structures 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.
Let us help you recover from back pain. Dr. Messerschmidt has helped many people with the same condition, and we can probably help you, too. Dr. Messerschmidt will first determine what's causing your pain and then work to restore your body to its natural functioning. Give our office a call today at (907) 789-1344 to make an appointment.
