Back Pain is a common problem after an auto collision, and it's something that Dr. Ellis sees frequently in our Woburn office. The key to recovering from back pain caused by a crash is to understand the root cause of the problem and how chiropractic care can help.
During a rear-end motor vehicle accident, your car and car seat are quickly accelerated forward against your torso. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curvature of your spinal column, the seat can put uneven force 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 movement can sprain or strain the tissues 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.
If you've been injured in a car crash and you're suffering from back pain, Dr. Ellis is here to help. First, we'll do a careful assessment to figure out the root cause of your pain, and then decide how to restore your body's natural functioning. Ready to make an appointment?
