Back Pain and Car Accidents

If you have back pain after an auto collision, don't worry. Dr. Nellie sees this type of problem very often in our Anchorage office. The key to recovering from back pain caused by a crash is to understand the root cause of the problem and how chiropractic care can help.

During a rear-end car crash, your car and car seat are quickly accelerated forward against your torso. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curvature of your spine, the car seat can put inconsistent pressure 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 tissues that hold your spine together. This kind of injury can cause chronic back pain if not treated right away. Thankfully, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.

Let us help you recover from back pain. Dr. Nellie has helped many patients with the same problem, and we can probably help you, too. Dr. Nellie will first determine what's causing your pain and then work to restore your body to its natural functioning. Ready to make an appointment?
