If you have back pain after an auto injury, you're not alone. Dr. Jamie Stern sees this type of problem frequently in our Sunnyvale, CA office. Let's look at the root cause of back pain after a car accident and see how chiropractic can help.
During a rear-end car crash, your car and car seat are quickly accelerated forward against your torso. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curve of your back, the seat can put uneven pressure 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. Fortunately, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.
