If you have back pain after a car crash, don't worry. Dr. Lipsitz sees this type of condition frequently in our Waldorf, MD office. Let's look at why back pain is frequently experienced after an auto injury and see how chiropractic care can help you heal.
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 curvature of your spinal column, 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 ligaments that hold your spine together. These types of injuries can cause chronic back pain if not treated right away. Fortunately, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.
