Back Pain is a common symptom after an auto collision, and it's something that Dr. Moses Ogbemudia sees frequently in our Capitol Hill, Washington DC office. Why is back pain such a common symptom after an auto injury? 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 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.
You don't have to suffer from back pain. Dr. Moses Ogbemudia is conveniently located in Capitol Hill, Washington DC to help you recover, whether you've been in an auto collision or not.
