Chiropractic Supports Neck Pain After Car Crashes

West New York Chiropractic Helps Neck Problems After Car Accidents

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

Neck pain is a common symptom after an auto collision and it's something that Dr. Marsh sees often in our West New York office. Chiropractic can be very helpful for neck pain symptoms after a crash. Let's examine what causes neck pain and why chiropractic works.

The neck is exposed to very high stresses and strains during a collision, so it's not surprising that neck pain is so common from this type of injury. During even a low speed collision, your head is exposed to very rapid acceleration. In such accidents, a head that normally weighs about 10 pounds can instantly weigh eight times as much. This force exerts an extreme 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 collision, just as your ankle ligaments can be sprained. A sprain means that the ligament is stretched or torn.

When you experience a sprained ligament, the damaged area become swollen and painful, and that's what occurs after a car crash. Chiropractic helps by increasing flexibility in the injured region, which helps the ligaments heal and helps decrease scar tissue.
