Back Pain is a common symptom after an auto injury, and it's something that Frank J. Valente, DC, PC sees frequently in our New York office. Chiropractic is an effective way to treat back pain. Let's look at how back pain is caused by a crash and how Frank J. Valente, DC, PC can help you.
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 curve of your spine, the car seat can put inconsistent 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 motion can sprain or strain the ligaments that hold your spine together. These types of injuries can cause chronic back pain if not treated right away. Thankfully, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.
