Neck trauma is a relatively common injury that occurs to a person's neck following a sudden acceleration-deceleration force, most commonly from motor vehicle accidents.
It is commonly thought the rear impact causes the head and neck to be forced into hyper extension as the seat pushes the person's torso forward and the unrestrained head and neck fall backwards.
The most common symptoms related to neck trauma include: neck pain and stiffness, headache, shoulder pain and stiffness, dizziness, fatigue, jaw pain, arm pain, arm weakness, visual problems, ringing in the ears (tinnitus), and back pain.
The appropriate chiropractic treatment is unique to each neck trauma injury and is directed at the primary dysfunctions detected during the chiropractic exam. ( each treatment is subject to an intensive Chiropractic examination )
