If you suffer from back pain after an auto injury, you're not alone. Dr. Kenneth Osborn sees this type of problem frequently in our Columbus office. Let's look at the root cause of back pain after an auto injury and see how your chiropractor can help.
During a rear-end auto collision, your car and car seat are rapidly accelerated forward against your body. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curvature of your spine, the car seat can put uneven 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 tissues 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.
If you've been hurt in a car crash and you're experiencing back pain, Dr. Kenneth Osborn is here to help. First, we'll do a careful assessment to figure out the root cause of your problem, and then decide how to restore your body's natural functioning. Ready to make an appointment?
