VIDEO: Low Back Pain after Auto Injury
Many people report back pain after a car crash. A study looked at the biomechanics of lumbar spine injury from auto collisions and found that the car seat is most likely the culprit. Your spine has a natural curve shape. During a crash, if the shape of your car seat does not match your spine exactly, the violent acceleration can cause some parts of your spine to move more than other parts. This can stretch and tear ligaments in your spine, causing the following:
- Scar Tissue
- Nerve Injury
- Permanent Damage
If you've been injured in a crash, chiropractic may be able to help. Chiropractic is a proven, effective approach for both acute and chronic back pain.
