Back Pain and Car Crashes

If you suffer from back pain after an auto collision, don't worry. Dr. Dorn sees this type of problem frequently in our Killeen, TX office. Why is back pain such a common problem after a car accident? How can chiropractic care help you recover?

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 spine, the car seat can put uneven 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 motion can sprain or strain the ligaments that hold your spine together. This type 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.

Let us help you recover from back pain. Dr. Dorn has helped many patients with the same condition, and we can probably help you, too.
