Low Back Pain

back-painLow back pain is a common ailment of many Americans, but this complaint can be exacerbated – or even caused entirely – by a car accident. And that pain can linger long after your vehicle has been fixed and your insurance company has settled the issue. Ongoing back pain caused by a car accident isn’t just a constant reminder of the trauma you endured, but can be a painful and even debilitating condition that keeps you from working, playing and generally enjoying life. At Meadows Chiropractic, we specializing in assisting car accident victims with the low back pain relief they need.

As you’ve likely noticed as you sit in a chair, practice yoga or even stand for long periods of time, your lower back is primarily responsible for stabilizing your spinal column and, in turn, your entire body. While whiplash is generally associated with the head and neck, the sudden, jolting movement of whiplash can also cause severe low back pain due to tension in the muscles in the upper back and down the spine. Additionally, car accidents can cause acute back pain due to direct trauma to the musculoskeletal system. While acute back pain is likely to improve over time with proper rest, car accidents can also cause or exacerbate chronic low back pain, a condition that will not improve without proper treatment.
