Back Pain and Car Crashes

We work with many auto injury cases in in our Anchorage office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is back pain. Why is back pain such a common problem after a car crash? How can your chiropractor help you heal?

During a rear-end car crash, your car and car seat are rapidly accelerated forward against your body. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curve of your back, the seat can put uneven 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 type 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. Mulholland has helped many people with the same condition, and we can probably help you, too. Dr. Mulholland will first determine what's causing your pain and then work to restore your body to its natural functioning. Ready to make an appointment?
