Back Pain and Car Accidents

If you are dealing with back pain after an auto collision, don't worry. Dr. Findlay sees this type of problem frequently in our Silverdale office. Why is back pain such a common problem after a car crash? How can your chiropractor help you recover?

During a rear-end car crash, 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 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 movement can sprain or strain the tissues that hold your spine together. This type of injury can cause chronic back pain if not treated promptly. Fortunately, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.

Let us help you recover from back pain. Dr. Findlay has helped many people with the same condition, and we can probably help you, too. Dr. Findlay will first determine what's causing your pain and then work to restore your body to its natural functioning. Give our office a call today at (360) 692-5350 to make an appointment.
