Whiplash Injury Treatment and Back Pain
Many people say they experience back pain after a car wreck. We treat patients suffering from auto injuries in Stamford and Westchester County.
A 2002 paper carried out by researchers at the Albert Einstein School of Medicine examined the biomechanics of lumbar spine injuries from rear-end crashes and found that the car seat is most likely the root cause in these kinds of injuries.
Your spinal column has an innate curved structure that absorbs jolts and stresses and also makes it possible for freedom of movement.
There are dozens, perhaps hundreds, of distinct styles of car seats with different shapes, covers, stiffnesses and geometries. If your car seat doesn't correspond to your spine precisely, the violent acceleration of the carseat during an impact can cause some segments of your spine to move more than other parts.
This shearing action can pull or tear the ligaments of your spinal column, triggering pain, swelling, scar tissue, neurological injury, and even long-term damage.
Chiropractic care is a tried and tested, successful way to help people with lower back pain, and we've been working with back pain patients in Stamford, CT since 1992.
