Learning More About Whiplash/Neck Pain
Whiplash is an injury to soft tissue and is commonly found in patients after suffering a car accident. A cervical muscle strain or a ligament sprain in the neck muscles occurs, which can be extremely painful. Sometimes, a neck brace is even needed to help correct the problem and ease the pain. And, believe it or not, whiplash can come from even the smallest of car accidents.
During an accident, a victim receives their injury from their reaction to the impending impact. It comes down to posture and the human body’s resistance. Say you are in an accident but don’t see the impact coming. Your body is very relaxed when your car gets hit. You get thrown around in the car like a rag doll and can lead to whiplash, as many Chiropractors find to be common in car accident victims.
Such an injury should be taken very seriously and as a possible sign of a more serious underlying issue. Chiropractors advise getting checked out as quickly as possible should you experience any neck discomfort or pain following an accident. If a problem is identified quickly, it could lead to worse conditions in due time. And if you decide to go without treatment, it could significantly affect daily life.
