Neck discomfort is the most widespread symptom disclosed after a car crash, and it's not difficult to understand why.
During a crash, your body moves with the seat while your head stays behind due to inertia. It is this difference in motion that leads to injury.
Your spinal column is susceptible to sprain and strain from shear forces that result from the head and body going in different directions. This shearing movement can stretch or tear the ligaments and discs of your spine, producing pain, swelling and scar tissue. Receiving early treatment, is necessary in order to prevent chronic pain, especially because of the high risk of ongoing symptoms in patients with whiplash .
Studies have shown that up to 20% of patients may have neck pain symptoms even 10 years after the crash.
If you have been hurt in a collision, chiropractic adjustments Dr. Bogan might be able to help. Research shows that chiropractic can help improve neck range of motion and reduce the risk of scar tissue from forming after an injury.
