If you have back pain after an auto collision, you're not alone. Dr. Poelking sees this type of problem very often in our Kettering office. Chiropractic is an effective way to treat back pain. Let's look at how back pain is caused by a crash and how Dr. Poelking can help you.
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 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 tissues that hold your spine together. This type of injury can cause chronic back pain if not treated right away. Thankfully, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.
You don't have to suffer from back pain. Dr. Poelking is conveniently located in Kettering to help you get better, whether you've been in an auto collision or not. First, we'll do a careful examination to figure out the root cause of your pain, and then decide how to restore your body's natural functioning.
