Back Pain is a common symptom after a car crash, and it's something that Dr. Cohen sees often in our Hauppauge, Long Island, NY office. Let's take a look at why back pain is frequently experienced after an auto collision and see how chiropractic care can help you get better.

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 curve of your spine, the car 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. These types of injuries can cause chronic back pain if not treated right away. Fortunately, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.
