How an Auto Accident Affects the Neck

The impact during a car accident causes whiplash. During the impact, the neck is rapidly bent frontward and backward, which can overextend the muscles and tissues. You may also experience small fractures and torn muscle tissue in the neck. When you visit us, our chiropractors may decide to perform some imaging, such as an X-ray, CT scan, or both, to view the extent of your injury. These tests will help us see the inside of your neck more clearly and what is causing your pain. Once we determine a diagnosis, we can provide you with treatment that will alleviate the discomfort.
