Back Pain and Car Accidents
If you are dealing with back pain after a car crash, don't despair. Dr. Robert Ramsey sees this type of condition frequently in our Gresham, OR office. Chiropractic 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 motor vehicle accident, your car and car seat are quickly accelerated forward against your body. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curve 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 movement can sprain or strain the structures 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.
If you've been injured in a car crash and you're struggling with back pain, Dr. Robert Ramsey is here to help. First, we'll do a careful evaluation to establish the root cause of your pain, and then decide how to restore your body's natural functioning. Ready to make an appointment?
