Certain parts of the body are more susceptible to injury during motor vehicle collisions. This is especially true for your neck. Why? Because the body is (relatively) stable due to the car seat and seat belt, most of the energy transferred from the colliding vehicles causes the head to accelerate very quickly. The musculature and structures of the neck are not able to withstand these tremendous forces, thus something must “give.” The result? Torn muscles/tendons/ligaments, broken bones, stretched nerves just to name a few. These injuries can result from ALL types of auto accidents. If you have been involved in an auto accident, even “just a fender-bender,” turn to the experts at Marcum Chiropractic for relief. Call 503-235-7130 today.
