Back Pain is a common symptom after a car accident, and it's something that Dr. Jung sees often in our Pinole office. Let's look at the root cause of back pain after an auto injury and see how chiropractic can help.
During a rear-end auto collision, 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 movement can sprain or strain the tissues that hold your spine together. These types of injuries 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 injured in a car crash and you're suffering from back pain, Dr. Jung is here to help. Dr. Jung will first determine what's causing your pain and then work to restore your body to its natural functioning. Ready to make an appointment?
