Back Pain is a common condition after an auto collision, and it's something that Dr. Aazami sees frequently in our Rockville office. What causes back pain after a car crash? How can chiropractic help?
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 curvature of your back, the seat can put inconsistent pressure 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. This kind 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 experiencing back pain, Dr. Aazami is here to help. Dr. Aazami will first determine what's causing your pain and then work to restore your body to its natural functioning.
