Back Pain and Car Accidents

We treat many auto injury cases in in our Vernal, UT office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is back pain. Chiropractic care is an effective way to treat back pain. Let's look at how back pain is caused by a crash and how Dr. Nelson can help you.

During a rear-end auto collision, your car and car seat are quickly accelerated forward against your body. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curvature of your spine, the seat can put inconsistent 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 movement can sprain or strain the ligaments that hold your spine together. These types of injuries can cause chronic back pain if not treated promptly. Thankfully, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.

Let us help you recover from back pain. Dr. Nelson has helped many patients with the same problem, and we can probably help you, too. Dr. Nelson will first determine what's causing your pain and then work to restore your body to its natural functioning. Give our office a call today at (435) 789-4483 to make an appointment.
