We work with many car accident cases in in our Mid-Wilshire, LA office, and a widespread symptom we see in our patients is back pain. The key to recovering from back pain caused by a crash is to understand the root cause of the problem and how chiropractic care can help.
During a rear-end car crash, your car and car seat are quickly accelerated forward against your torso. Since car seats don’t perfectly align with the curvature of your spine, the car seat can put inconsistent force 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 structures 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. Joseph Hakimi is conveniently located in Mid-Wilshire, LA to help you recover, whether you’ve been in an auto collision or not.
