We treat many auto injury cases in in our Rochester Hills, MI office, and a widespread symptom we see in our patients is back pain. Let's take a look at why back pain is frequently experienced after a car crash and see how your chiropractor can help you get better.
During a rear-end motor vehicle accident, 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 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 movement can sprain or strain the structures that hold your spine together. These types of injuries can cause chronic back pain if not treated right away. Fortunately, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.

Chiropractors, often considered alternative or complementary medicine practitioners, are primary care doctors who focus on good health through proper nutrition, exercise, and other lifestyle factors. The chiropractic philosophy is based on the idea that when nerves emerging from the spinal cord are compromised (known as a subluxation), the affected individual might experience pain, disability and an overall decrease in the quality of life.
