If you suffer from back pain after an auto collision, don't despair. Dr. Spiropoulos sees this type of condition frequently in our Moon Township office. 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 motor vehicle accident, your car and car seat are rapidly accelerated forward against your body. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curvature of your spine, the seat can put uneven 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 movement can sprain or strain the tissues that hold your spine together. These types of injuries can cause chronic back pain if not treated promptly. Thankfully, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.
If you've been hurt in a car crash and you're experiencing back pain, Dr. Spiropoulos is here to help. First, we'll do a careful evaluation to establish the root cause of your problem, and then decide how to restore your body's natural functioning.
