It's not surprising that neck pain is the most common problem experienced after a car 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. The neck is subjected to very high stresses and strains during a crash, so it's not surprising that neck pain is so common from this type of injury. During even a low speed wreck, your head is subjected to extremely rapid acceleration. In such collisions, a head that normally weighs about 10 pounds can instantly weigh 80 or more pounds. 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 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 injured area gets inflamed and tender, and that's what takes place after a car crash. Your chiropractor helps by increasing movement in the injured area, which helps the tissues heal and helps minimize scar tissue.
