It's not surprising that neck pain is the most common problem experienced after a crash. 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. The neck is subjected to very high forces during an auto injury, so it's not surprising that neck pain is so common from this type of injury. During even a low velocity collision, your head is subjected to extremely rapid acceleration. In such collisions, a head that normally weighs about 10 pounds can suddenly weigh eight times as much. 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 your ankle ligaments can be sprained. A sprain means that the ligament is stretched or torn.
When you experience a sprained ligament, the damaged tissues gets inflamed and tender, and that's what happens after a car crash. Your chiropractor helps by increasing flexibility in the injured area, which helps the ligaments heal and helps decrease scar tissue.
