Neck Pain as a Result of an Auto Accident

One of the most common neck pain complaints is the result of one developing whiplash. Whiplash is most commonly associated with car accidents. Whiplash occurs when the neck is hyper extended suddenly.

In car accidents, this frequently occurs when a drivers are rear ended and their necks are thrust forward. This stretches out the neck, which results in whiplash. 

Whiplash is very treatable but it must be treated by a skilled professional.

Arrowhead Clinic Atlanta specializes in this type of treatment.

Why is Neck Pain so Common?

Many demands are placed on your cervical and upper thoracic spine during the day. The Neck creates stability for your head, shoulders, and upper body.

Your neck allows for:

  • Standing up straight
  • Bending and twisting
  • Protection of the delicate spinal cord that passes through the spinal column.

Your Neck is composed of vertebrae that begin in the upper torso and end at the base of the skull.

The bony vertebrae along with the ligaments, which are comparable to thick rubber bands, provide stability to the spinal structure while the discs provide shock absorption. 

The muscles allow the neck to glide smoothly for motion and provide necessary support.

The neck has a significant amount of motion and supports but, because it is less protected than the rest of the spine, the neck can be vulnerable to injury and disorders that produce pain and restrict motion.

For many people, Neck Pain is a progressive issue that can cause terrible discomfort if not taken care of quickly.

Also, because the delicate nerves of our arms initially run through the cervical spine, any damage to a particular area of the neck can initiate adverse symptoms in the arms, such as:

  • burning
  • tingling
  • numbness
  • weakness

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms it is critical that you get check out by one of our Neck Pain Doctors in Atlanta today.

If this nerve damage persists it can have a long-term impact on your quality of life.
