We treat many auto injury cases in our Rutland office and a common symptom we see in our patients is back pain.
Why is back pain such a common problem after a car accident? How can your chiropractor help you get better?
Chiropractic care is a great way to treat back pain. Let's look at how back pain is caused by a crash and how Dr. Cyr 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 curvature of your back, the car seat can put inconsistent 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 tissues that hold your spine together. This kind 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.
