Back Pain and Car Accidents

If you suffer from back pain after a car accident, you're not alone. Dr. Kohler sees this type of condition frequently in our Bridgeville, PA office. Let's see why back pain is frequently experienced after an auto injury and see how chiropractic care can help you get better.

During a rear-end auto collision, your car and car seat are quickly accelerated forward against your torso. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curvature 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 motion 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. Fortunately, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.
