Your neck – also referred to as the cervical spine – is a delicate accumulation of vertebrae, nerves, and muscles that work to support your head. The neck is very flexible and capable of rotating from side to side, up and down. Though the neck is not weak, it is susceptible to injury and pain.
Neck pain and back pain are two primary complaints often the result of a motor vehicle accident. This can include a rear end collision, side impact collision, or head on collision. Even a collision as little as a 5mph impact can cause sprain/ strain injuries to the neck and back. Neck and back injuries can also occur due to slip and falls, work injuries, etc.
Patients should seek immediate attention for neck and/or back pain caused by an injury. If you are experiencing neck or back pain after an auto-accident, our multiple disciplinary medical approach may be your solution.
