If you or a loved one have recently been in an accident, and now you are feeling neck pain, it’s highly likely that you are suffering from whiplash, a common name for a neck sprain, which is traditionally caused when a sudden impact causes the body (and specifically the neck) to jolt forward or backward violently enough to damage the muscles and soft tissues in your neck.
Pain and a reduced range of motion can be debilitating, and even cause you to miss out on work or family activities. Fortunately, chiropractic adjustments of the neck and back can help loosen up the impacted muscles, and bring pain relief to the entire area.
Most people associate whiplash with rear-end collision car accidents, and it is certainly a common injury resulting from auto accidents of that type, but whiplash can be sustained through a wide array of differing causes including:

While neck pain and decreased ability to turn your head are almost universal when dealing with whiplash, there are other symptoms which can also be present, including:
If you have been in any sort of accident that caused a sudden jerk within your body, and you are now feeling any of the above symptoms, you should seek medical care from a trained accident doctor as soon as possible.
