Auto Injury and Neck Pain

Neck pain is the most common auto injury documented after a car crash, and it's not difficult to see why. Drs. Ken Haycock and Tim Vierheller in Massillon, OH has been helping people with neck pain resulting from car crashes since 2003.

During a collision, your torso moves with the seat while your head stays behind due to inertia. It is this difference in movement that causes injury.

Your spinal column is prone to sprain and stress from shear forces that result from the head and body shifting in different directions. This shearing movement can stretch or tear the ligaments and discs of your spine, resulting in pain, inflammation and scar tissue. Receiving early chiropractic care, is key for avoiding chronic pain, particularly because of the high risk of ongoing symptoms in patients with whiplash.

Research has shown that up to twenty percent of individuals may have neck pain symptoms even 10 years after the collision.

If you have been injured in a collision, chiropractic care might be able to help. Studies indicate that chiropractic care can help improve neck range of motion and prevent scar tissue from forming after an auto injury. And other studies show that early intervention can also help prevent the development of long-term pain.
