If you are suffering from back pain after an auto injury, you're not alone. Dr. Robert Ramsey sees this type of problem very often in our Gresham, OR office. Let's look at the root cause of back pain after an auto collision and see how chiropractic care can help.
During a rear-end car crash, your car and car seat are rapidly accelerated forward against your torso. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curvature of your back, the car seat can put inconsistent pressure on your 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 right away. Thankfully, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.
If you've been injured in a car crash and you're experiencing back pain, Dr. Robert Ramsey is here to help. The first step is to get an accurate diagnosis to determine what's causing your pain and then we will determine an appropriate treatment approach.
