It's not surprising that neck pain is the most common problem experienced after a crash. Even in a collision, 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. Your neck is subjected to very high forces during a crash, so it's not surprising that neck pain is so common from this type of injury. During even a low velocity wreck, your head is exposed to very rapid acceleration. In such accidents, 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 cervical spine. 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 your ankle ligaments can be sprained. A sprain means that the ligament is stretched or torn.
When you experience a sprained ligament, the injured area gets inflamed and tender, and that's what takes place after a car crash. Your chiropractor helps by increasing flexibility in the injured area, which helps the ligaments heal and helps decrease scar tissue.
