Don’t be misled by the minimal damage to your car. People react much differently than glass, plastic and metal!

Motor vehicle accidents happen so fast that often times your body does not have time to react, or brace itself for the impact. This leaves your body and spine in a very vulnerable position and is why accidents put a tremendous amount of stress on the spine and surrounding soft tissues.

During the moments of impact, the jarring of your head and neck is what leads to whiplash, the most common injury seen during a motor vehicle accident. What a lot of people do not understand is that it can take days, weeks or even months for symptoms of whiplash to manifest.

Shortly after the injury, the surrounding muscles will tighten up as a defense mechanism to help protect the underlying damaged structures. Eventually the injured soft tissues will inflame and lead to pain, irritation and scar formation. It is during this normal healing phase where it is crucial to maintain proper range of motion and spinal alignment. If this is not done properly, scar tissue can permanently limit mobility, lead to spinal degeneration and likely leave the individual with chronic aches and pains.
