Back Pain is a common symptom after a car crash, and it's something that Dr. Berklich sees frequently in our Alpharetta office. Chiropractic is a great way to treat back pain. Let's look at how back pain is caused by a crash and how Dr. Berklich can help you.
During a rear-end car crash, your car and car seat are rapidly accelerated forward against your torso. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curve of your back, 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 motion can sprain or strain the structures that hold your spine together. This kind of injury can cause chronic back pain if not treated right away. Fortunately, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.
