If you suffer from back pain after a car accident, don't despair. Dr. Amodeo sees this type of problem very often in our Memphis office. Why is back pain such a common condition after an auto injury? How can your chiropractor help you recover?
During a rear-end car crash, your car and car seat are quickly accelerated forward against your torso. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curvature of your back, 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 movement can sprain or strain the tissues that hold your spine together. These types of injuries can cause chronic back pain if not treated right away. Fortunately, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.
