Back Pain is a common problem after an auto injury, and it's something that Dr. Robert Ramsey sees frequently in our Gresham, OR office. Chiropractic care is an excellent way to treat back pain. Let's look at how back pain is caused by a crash and how Dr. Robert Ramsey can help you.
During a rear-end auto collision, 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 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 tissues that hold your spine together. This type 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.
You don't have to suffer from back pain. Dr. Robert Ramsey is conveniently located in Gresham, OR to help you recover, whether you've been in an auto collision or not. Dr. Robert Ramsey will first determine what's causing your pain and then work to restore your body to its natural functioning. Ready to make an appointment?
