Auto accidents are an everyday occurrence in the city of Seattle and throughout the country. Although the modern automobile is well engineered to prevent fatalities from such auto accidents the human body still absorbs an incredible amount of stress from the rapid acceleration and deceleration usually resulting in whiplash. Seatbelts are very effective at keeping the majority of the body secure during an accident but since your head and neck are not securely fastened they are the most commonly damaged areas even in minor, low speed collisions.
During impact the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and discs within and around the spine are sprained and the bony alignment can instantaneously be misaligned, or buckled, causing pain, numbness and tingling from disc injuries and ultimately irritation to the spinal cord and spinal nerves.
The key to recovering quickly from an auto accident is taking action soon after the incident. Waiting only compounds the problem and results in chronic neck, head and back pain.
