Auto Injury Treatment and Back Pain

A lot of folks say their back aches after a car wreck. Whether you were in an accident recently or years ago, you may want to seek chiropractic treatment. Our pain relief specialists in Waldorf, MD provide lasting relief of back pain.

A 2002 paper carried out by scientists at the Albert Einstein School of Medicine looked at the biomechanics of lumbar spine injury from rear-end collisions and found that the car seat is in all likelihood the root cause in these types of injuries.

Your spinal column has an innate curved shape that absorbs shocks and stresses and at the same time enables freedom of movement.

There are dozens, perhaps hundreds, of distinct designs of car seats with different shapes, coverings, stiffnesses and geometries. If your carseat doesn't match your spine precisely, the violent acceleration of the car seat during an impact can cause some parts of your spine to shift much more than other parts.

This shearing effect can pull or rip the ligaments of your spinal column, causing discomfort, swelling, scar tissue, nerve injury, and even long-lasting damage.
