If you have back pain after an auto injury, you're not alone. Dr. Green sees this type of problem very often in our Estero, Bonita Springs office. The key to recovering from back pain caused by a crash is to understand the root cause of the problem and how chiropractic care can help.
During a rear-end auto collision, your car and car seat are quickly accelerated forward against your body. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curvature of your back, the 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 movement can sprain or strain the ligaments that hold your spine together. This type of injury can cause chronic back pain if not treated promptly. Fortunately, 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. Green is here to help. The first step is to get an accurate diagnosis to determine what's causing your symptoms and then we will determine an appropriate treatment strategy.
