Back Pain is a common symptom after an auto collision, and it's something that Dr. Poelking sees often in our Kettering office. What causes back pain after an auto collision? 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 curvature of your back, the seat can put uneven force on your lower 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. These types of injuries can cause chronic back pain if not treated promptly. Fortunately, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.
Dr. Poelking is here in Kettering to help you recover from back pain. We've been helping patients since 1995 and we can probably help you, too. The first step is to get an accurate diagnosis to determine what's causing your symptoms and then we will determine an appropriate treatment plan of action.
