Common Neck Injuries Following a Car Wreck 

The most common type of injury following a car wreck is whiplash. Whiplash happens when the head is jarred back and forth suddenly by a sudden impact. This back and forth motion will cause trauma to the soft tissues of the neck. The soft tissues of the neck include the muscles and tendons.

Another common type of injury is a herniated disc. Between each vertebra of the spine, you will find a disc. This disc is soft and gel-like. The purpose of the disc is to cushion the bones of the spine and to keep them from rubbing together. It is also there to help protect the sensitive nerves of the spinal cord. If there is a sudden impact on the neck, these discs can compress and even rupture, causing pain and dysfunction.

Our Chiropractor Can Help

If you are experiencing neck pain after your accident, our chiropractor can help. There are treatments available to help manage the pain and to speed healing.

  • Spinal adjustment is often used to treat whiplash and herniated discs. The spine is often knocked out of alignment during a car crash, so it is a good idea to get an adjustment.
  • Massage therapy can help loosen up traumatized muscles that have suffered whiplash.
  • Spinal decompression can be used to treat a disc injury.
