There are over 342,534 car accidents each year in the state of Georgia. Some of these accidents are minor and others more severe, yet a high percentage of these accidents lead to whiplash and neck injuries that our chiropractors in Athens can help treat.
Many whiplash injuries from vehicle accidents occur at speeds as low as five to 10 mph. The severity of the injury often depends on whether you are properly restrained.
Neck pain ordinarily occurs when your car is rear-ended during an Auto Accident because of the violent changes within the structures of the neck.
The sudden backward jerk (extension) and forward movement (flexion) causes the joints of the neck to be injured and can also cause the ligaments and muscles of the neck and upper back to be overstretched and go into spasm.
