Chiropractic is Great for Neck Problems After a Car Crash

Chiropractic Care Helps Neck Problems After Car Crashes

Why is Neck Pain Such a Common Symptom After Car Accidents? How Can Chiropractic Treatment Help You Get Better?

We manage many car crash cases in our Jacksonville office, and a common symptom our patients report is neck pain. Your chiropractor can be very helpful for neck pain symptoms after a crash. Let's examine what causes neck pain and why chiropractic works.

It's not surprising that neck pain is the most common symptom experienced after a crash. During even a low speed wreck, your head is exposed to extremely rapid acceleration. In such collisions, a head that normally weighs about 10 pounds can suddenly 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 car crash, 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 damaged tissues become inflamed and painful, and that's what happens after a car crash. Chiropractic helps by increasing movement in the injured region, which helps the ligaments heal and helps lessen scar tissue.
