If you have back pain after a car crash, you're not alone. Dr. Bogan sees this type of condition frequently in our Tulsa office. Let's look at the root cause of back pain after an auto injury and see how chiropractic care 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 curve of your back, the car seat can put uneven force 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 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.
