Back Pain From an Auto Accident

Car accidents can create significant injury, even if you feel the crash wasn’t serious, even if you don’t feel pain right away and even if you don’t see blood. An auto accident causes physical and mental strain, and one type of pain may temporarily mask the other. It’s often a good idea to get a chiropractic exam after an accident, to ensure nothing is amiss. If pain crops up well after an auto accident, seeing your chiropractor can help identify the source of your pain and provide the effective, natural treatment you need. Whiplash injuries, neck pain and back pain are the most common auto accident complaints and injuries.
