We treat many auto injury cases in in our St. Petersburg, FL office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is back pain. What causes back pain after an auto collision? How can a chiropractor help?

During a rear-end motor vehicle accident, your car and car seat are quickly accelerated forward against your body. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curve of your back, the car seat can put inconsistent force on your 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 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.

Dr. Kristin Eloshway-Kidgell is here in St. Petersburg, FL to help you recover from back pain. We've been helping patients since 2000 and we can probably help you, too.
