Neck soreness is the most widespread symptom reported after an auto injury, and it's not tough to understand why. Dr. Green in Bonita Springs, FL has been helping men and women with neck pain after auto injuries since 2006.
During a crash, your body moves with the seat while your head lags behind due to inertia. It is this difference in motion 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 movement can stretch or tear the ligaments and discs of your spinal column, resulting in pain, swelling and scar tissue. Seeking early treatment, is key for preventing chronic pain, particularly because of the high risk of persistent symptoms in people with whiplash injury.
Research has found that up to twenty percent of individuals can have neck pain conditions even ten years after the collision.
If you've been hurt in a collision, chiropractic care might be able to help. Studies indicate that chiropractic can help restore neck range of motion and reduce the risk of scar tissue from forming after an injury. And other research shows that early intervention can also help preclude the development of persistent pain.
If you've been in an auto collision and have signs of neck pain, Dr. Green is here for you. We can pinpoint the root cause of your pain and develop a treatment plan to support you in reclaiming your health. We've helped many people in Bonita Springs, FL heal from these sorts of injuries since 2006.
