Back Pain and Car Crashes

If you suffer from back pain after an auto collision, you're not alone. Dr. Urschel sees this type of condition very often in our Ashburn office. Let's look at why back pain is frequently experienced after an auto injury and see how chiropractic can help you heal.

During a rear-end auto collision, your car and car seat are rapidly accelerated forward against your torso. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curvature of your spinal column, the 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 tissues that hold your spine together. This kind of injury can cause chronic back pain if not treated promptly. Fortunately, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.

Dr. Urschel is here in Ashburn to help you recover from back pain. We've been helping patients since 2005 and we can probably help you, too. The first step is to get an accurate diagnosis to determine what's causing your pain and then we will determine an appropriate treatment strategy. Ready to make an appointment?
