We treat many auto injury cases in our Fairfax office and a widespread symptom we see in our patients is back pain.
Let's take a look at why back pain is frequently experienced after an auto collision and see how chiropractic can help you heal
Chiropractic care is an excellent way to treat back pain. Let's look at how back pain is caused by a crash and how Dr. Zapf can help you.
During a rear-end motor vehicle accident, 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 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 structures that hold your spine together. This type 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. Zapf is here in Fairfax to help you recover from back pain. We've been helping patients for many years and we can probably help you, too. First, we'll do a careful examination to figure out the root cause of your problem, and then decide how to restore your body's natural functioning.
