Chiropractic Care Extremely Effective for Neck Problems After Auto Injury

Why is Neck Pain Such a Common Symptom After Car Crashes? How Can Chiropractic Therapy Help You Heal?

We treat many car accident cases in our Burton office, and a common symptom our patients report is neck pain. Let's look at the root cause of neck pain after an auto injury and see how chiropractic care can help.

It's not surprising that neck pain is the most common symptom experienced after a car crash. During even a low velocity crash, your head is exposed to very rapid acceleration. In such accidents, a head that normally weighs about 10 pounds can instantly weigh 80 or more pounds. This force exerts a severe strain on the tissues of the neck. The bones of your spine are held together with strong bands of tissue called ligaments, and these ligaments provide stability for your neck. These ligaments can be sprained during a wreck, just as the ligaments in your ankle can be sprained. A sprain means that the ligament is stretched or torn.

When you experience a sprained ligament, the injured area gets swollen and painful, and that's what takes place after a car crash. Your chiropractor helps by increasing mobility in the injured region, which helps the ligaments heal and helps minimize scar tissue.
