It's not surprising that neck pain is the most common problem experienced after an auto injury. Even in a car wreck, 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 exposed 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 crash, your head is exposed to extremely rapid acceleration. In such crashes, 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 spinal column 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 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 swollen and painful, and that's what occurs after a car crash. Your chiropractor helps by increasing flexibility in the injured area, which helps the ligaments heal and helps lessen scar tissue.
