Chiropractic Care Helps Relieve Neck Issues After Car Crashes

Why is Neck Pain Such a Common Problem After Auto Accident? How Can Chiropractic Therapy Help You Heal?

If you suffer from neck pain after a car accident, don't worry. Dr. Poelking sees this type of problem very often in our Kettering office. Chiropractic is an effective way to treat neck pain. Let's look at how neck pain is caused by a crash and how Dr. Poelking can help you.

It's not surprising that neck pain is the most common symptom experienced after a crash. During even a low speed collision, your head is subjected to very rapid acceleration. In such accidents, a head that normally weighs about 10 pounds can suddenly weigh eight times as much. This force exerts a serious 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 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 gets swollen and tender, and that's what happens after a car crash. Chiropractic helps by increasing mobility in the injured region, which helps the ligaments heal and helps decrease scar tissue.
