Back Pain and Auto Injury

If you are dealing with back pain after a car accident, you're not alone. Dr. Harrison sees this type of problem frequently in our Decatur office. What causes back pain after an auto injury? How can chiropractic care help?

During a rear-end car crash, your car and car seat are rapidly accelerated forward against your torso. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curve of your back, the car seat can put inconsistent 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 tissues 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.
