We treat many auto injury cases in in our Burke office, and a widespread symptom we see in our patients is back pain. What causes back pain after a car crash? How can chiropractic care help?
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 spine, the seat can put inconsistent pressure on your 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 tissues that hold your spine together. This type 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.
Let us help you recover from back pain. Dr. Zapf has helped many patients with the same condition, and we can probably help you, too. Dr. Zapf will first determine what's causing your pain and then work to restore your body to its natural functioning. Give our office a call today at (703) 455-9555 to make an appointment.
