Back Pain and Car Accidents

If you have back pain after an auto injury, you're not alone. Chiropractic Healing Hands For You sees this type of condition very often in our Portland office. Why is back pain such a common condition after a car crash? How can chiropractic care help you get better?

During a rear-end motor vehicle accident, your car and car seat are rapidly accelerated forward against your body. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curve of your back, the seat can put inconsistent pressure 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. This type of injury can cause chronic back pain if not treated promptly. Thankfully, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.

If you've been hurt in a car crash and you're suffering from back pain, Chiropractic Healing Hands For You is here to help. First, we'll do a careful examination to figure out the root cause of your problem, and then decide how to restore your body's natural functioning. Ready to make an appointment?
