Back Pain is a common problem after an auto injury, and it's something that Dr. Alpert sees often in our Jonesboro office. Chiropractic care is a great way to treat back pain. Let's look at how back pain is caused by a crash and how Dr. Alpert can help you.
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.
Let us help you recover from back pain. Dr. Alpert has helped many patients with the same condition, and we can probably help you, too. The first step is to get an accurate diagnosis to determine what's causing your symptoms and then we will determine an appropriate treatment approach.
