Neck soreness is the most widespread symptom reported after an auto collision, and it's not tough to understand why.During a wreck, your body moves with the seat while your head lags behind due to inertia. It is this difference in movement that causes injury.
Your spinal column is vulnerable to sprain and strain from shear forces that result from the head and body moving in different directions. This shearing action can stretch or tear the ligaments and discs of your spine, resulting in pain, inflammation and scar tissue. Receiving early chiropractic care, is key for preventing chronic pain, particularly because of the high risk of persistent symptoms in people with whiplash.
Researchers have established that up to 1 out of 5 individuals can have neck pain conditions even ten years after the crash.
If you have been injured in a crash, chiropractic adjustments Dr. Calantoni might be able to help.
