Whiplash and Back Pain

Many people suffer from chronic back pain after a car crash. If you are in pain, consider making an appointment at our chiropractic office in Falmouth just north of Portland, ME. We have served the community for over 10 years, and would like to help you get out of pain.

A 2002 study carried out by researchers at the Albert Einstein School of Medicine examined the biomechanics of lumbar spine injuries from auto collisions and discovered that the car seat is very likely the culprit in these types of injuries.

Your spine has an innate curved structure that absorbs jolts and stresses and at the same time permits freedom of movement.

There are dozens, possibly even hundreds, of distinct styles of car seats with distinctive forms, covers, stiffnesses and geometries. If your car seat doesn't accommodate your spinal column exactly, the violent acceleration of the car seat during a crash can cause some portions of your spinal column to shift more than other parts.

This shearing motion can stretch or tear the ligaments of your spine, leading to pain, irritation, scar tissue, neurological injury, and even long-lasting damage.

Chiropractic care is a tried and tested, reliable way to help people with back pain, and we've been helping back pain patients in Portland, ME since 1994.

If you've been in an auto collision and have signs of back pain, Dr. Jay Woodward & Dr. Abby Power are here to help. We can help pinpoint the underlying cause of your problem and formulate a plan of action to help you reclaim your health. We have helped many people in the greater Portland area heal from these sorts of injuries.
