Neck pain is the most frequent symptom reported after a car crash, and it's not tough to see why.
During a crash, your body moves with the seat while your head stays behind due to inertia. It is this difference in motion that leads to auto injury.
Your spine is susceptible to sprain and strain from shear forces that come from the head and body going in different directions. This shearing action can stretch or tear the ligaments and discs of your spinal column, inflicting pain, irritation and scar tissue. Receiving early chiropractic care, is necessary in order to prevent chronic pain, particularly because of the elevated risk of ongoing symptoms in people with whiplash .
Research has shown that up to 1 out of 5 people can have neck pain problems even ten years after the collision.
If you've been hurt in a wreck, chiropractic Dr. Liveriadis might be able to help. Studies indicate that chiropractic can help restore neck range of motion and reduce the risk of scar tissue from forming after an injury. And other studies show that early treatment can also help prevent the development of long-term pain.
