Back Pain After a Car Crash

What causes back pain after a car crash? How can chiropractic help?

Let's look at the root cause of back pain after an auto collision and see how your chiropractor can help.

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 curvature of your back, the seat can put uneven 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. Fortunately, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.

Dr. Covington is here in Yakima to help you recover from back pain. We've been helping patients for many years and we can probably help you, too. The first step is to get an accurate diagnosis to determine what's causing your symptoms and then we will determine an appropriate treatment strategy.
