It's not surprising that neck pain is the most common problem experienced after an auto injury. Even in a car wreck, your head is rapidly thrown back and forth, so it's not surprising that neck pain is the most common symptom from this type of injury. The neck is exposed to very high forces during a collision, so it's not surprising that neck pain is so common from this type of injury. During even a low speed wreck, your head is subjected to extremely rapid acceleration. In such collisions, a head that normally weighs about 10 pounds can instantly weigh eight times as much. This force exerts a severe strain on the tissues of the cervical spine. The bones of your neck 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 become swollen and sore, and that's what takes place after a car crash. Chiropractic helps by increasing mobility in the injured area, which helps the tissues heal and helps minimize scar tissue.
