Back Pain and Car Accidents

Back Pain and Car Accidents

Back Pain is a common condition after an auto collision, and it’s something that Dr. Joseph Hakimi sees often in our Mid-Wilshire, LA office. What causes back pain after an auto collision? How can a chiropractor help?

During a rear-end motor vehicle accident, your car and car seat are rapidly accelerated forward against your torso. Since car seats don’t perfectly align with the curve of your spinal column, the car seat can put uneven 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 right away. Thankfully, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.

Dr. Joseph Hakimi is here in Mid-Wilshire, LA to help you recover from back pain. We’ve been helping patients since 1998 and we can probably help you, too.
