Auto accidents are frequent causes of neck and back pain.
There are some indicators of injuries that you may not associate with the accident. These might include:
The most common injuries resulting from auto accidents are sprains and strains of the spinal muscles and ligaments. Whiplash is a hyperextension and flexion injury to the neck. This is often the result of being in a vehicle that is struck from behind, as being rear ended by another vehicle in an auto accident. It can also be caused by the jerking motion in amusement park rides, such as bumper cars. If you received a sudden jolt from an auto accident, you could have a whiplash and need to see a chiropractor.
Even in low impact crashes, you may encounter soft tissue injuries resulting in head, neck, and/or back pain. Your vehicle was built to absorb the impact of a crash, but your body was not! Click here to see the effect of a 4.8 mph and 6.3 mph crash on your head and neck.

Medical doctors will make sure there are no life-threatening conditions and release the patient with pain relief medication. These pills do not correct structural or soft tissue damage.
Chiropractors are trained specifically to treat injuries to the spine. Symptoms ranging from headaches to neck pain, back pain, shoulder pain, and extremity pain all respond well to quality chiropractic care.
Left untreated, some injuries may result in lifelong problems.
