Back Pain and Auto Injury

Back Pain is a common symptom after an auto collision, and it's something that Michael J. Covington DC-PS sees often in our Yakima office. Why is back pain such a common symptom after an auto collision? How can chiropractic care help you recover?

During a rear-end car crash, your car and car seat are quickly accelerated forward against your body. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curve of your back, the seat can put uneven force 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 movement can sprain or strain the ligaments 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.

You don't have to suffer from back pain. Michael J. Covington DC-PS is conveniently located in Yakima to help you heal, whether you've been in a car crash or not. Michael J. Covington DC-PS will first determine what's causing your pain and then work to restore your body to its natural functioning. Ready to make an appointment?
