Neck pain, commonly in the form of whiplash, is a very common injury in auto accidents. Advanced Health Clinic has many treatments which will alleviate your neck pain.
Whiplash is often a serious and painful injury to the cervical spine, upper thoracic spine and the supporting soft tissues of these areas. This injury is a result of a motorvehicle accident when the force of the accident causes the patient's head to be thrown at a force which exceeds the soft tissue's ability to control the head. This causes sprains/strains to the soft tissues (muscles, ligaments, tendons) in the cervical and upper thoracic region.
Joints and ligaments can be sprained in a number of different ways. Sprain/strain injuries lead to pain, swelling, loss of range of motion and abnormal biomechanics. These injuries commonly occur while participating in sports, as a result of car accidents, falling or even just stepping
