If you are dealing with back pain after an auto collision, you're not alone. Dr. Robert Ramsey sees this type of problem frequently in our Gresham, OR office. Let's see why back pain is commonly experienced after an auto injury and see how chiropractic can help you heal.
During a rear-end auto collision, your car and car seat are quickly accelerated forward against your body. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curvature of your back, the 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 ligaments that hold your spine together. These types of injuries can cause chronic back pain if not treated promptly. Thankfully, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.
