Back Pain and Auto Injury

If you suffer from back pain after an auto collision, don't worry. Dr. Ramsey sees this type of condition frequently in our Gresham office. Why is back pain such a common symptom 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 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 tissues that hold your spine together. This kind of injury can cause chronic back pain if not treated promptly. Fortunately, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.

Dr. Ramsey has been helping patients in Gresham since 1997, so we know what you're living with. We're here to help you, too. Dr. Ramsey 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 (503) 667-6744 to make an appointment.
