Back Pain and Car Accidents
Back Pain is a common symptom after an auto collision, and it's something that Dr. Vinh Tran, DC, CCSP sees often in our Midtown, New York, NY office. Let's look at the root cause of back pain after an accident and see how your chiropractor 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 curve of your back, the seat can put inconsistent 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 promptly. Thankfully, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.
You don't have to suffer from back pain. Dr. Vinh Tran, DC, CCSP is conveniently located in Midtown, New York, NY to help you get better, whether you've been in a car crash or not. 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.
