The neck is the most frequently injured part of the body during a motor vehicle collision.  Why? The reason is because our necks are not strong enough to resist the force of the head moving very quickly after being hit.  This results in the muscles frequently get strained and the ligaments sprained.  Surrounding musculature goes into spasm limiting/preventing joint movement and can lead to other problems including headaches, dizziness and if not treated properly, arthritis.  The movements of the cervical spine (neck) are the most complex biomechanical motion in the human body.  Even “minor” trauma can have devastating and lasting effects on the neck.  Following any injury to your neck it is best to be evaluated and treated.  Call Marcum Chiropractic at 503-235-7130 to get expert care and to heal properly.
