Accidents Will Happen - So Will Neck Pain

In the United States alone, over 3 Million people are reportedly injured in car crashes every year. These statistics don’t include unreported accident data. The latest estimates put the combined reported and unreported car crashes in the U.S. at 6 Million car crashes annually, if not more. It’s very likely that the report on 3 Million Auto Accident Injuries is lower than what the number is in reality. Studies also show that most people will report an auto accident once every 18 years. If you forward that over an average life span, you or someone you love with be in at least 3 auto accidents during their lifetime. If you’ve been in an auto accident, and you or your loved one are experiencing neck pain, we urge you to seek Medical attention. Every year, thousands of accident victims find Neck Pain Relief at Planet Chiropractic in Douglasville, GA. Our Chiropractic Care team specializes in helping accident injury victims find neck pain relief.

Seatbelts Can Save Lives - But Not Necks

Since the early ages of automobiles, steps have continually been taken to ensure that accident victims have the greatest chance possible of survival. Car Crashes are an unfortunate, inevitable part of our American lives. Every minute that you’re on the road, you stand the risk of an accident with another car, an object on the road like a deer or box, or an object off the roadside like a mailbox or tree. Even the very best drivers are not immune to automobile accidents. If you are involved in an accident, we trust that you and your loved ones will have your seatbelts securely and correctly buckled. Seatbelts can save you from being thrown against the dashboard of your car or being launched out the window onto the pavement. A seatbelt might save your life, but it might also wreak havoc on your head and neck.

Why Are Car Crashes So Hard on Our Necks?

When your car comes to a sudden and unexpected stop or you’re hit by another car, your body lunges until it is hopefully stopped by a fully-functional seatbelt. As you probably know, most cars are not equipped with head-straps like some roller coasters are. When the seatbelt in your vehicle grabs your body, your head and neck continue forward with an unbridled amount of force. When this motion reaches its furthest point forward, your head and neck will then snap uncontrollably backwards, and if there is enough force, forwards again. It’s like Whiplash with an appetizer of violent forward thrusting of your head and neck. These three actions may not take very long to happen in real time, but the consequences can be severe and long-lasting. Neck trauma can tear ligaments, pull muscles, damage discs, and misalign vertebrae. This trauma can result in severe neck pain, headaches, lock-jaw, low back pain, dizziness, and concussions. If you have had an auto accident, or you have suffered traumatic injury to your neck, Planet Chiropractic is here for you.
