Your Vulnerable" Neck

A sports injury, horseplay, a mild fall any sudden movement that forces your head and neck forward, backward, or sideways can severely injure your neck's soft tissues.

A sports injury, horseplay, a mild fall any sudden movement that forces your head and neck forward, backward, or sideways can severely injure your neck’s soft tissues.

Imagine balancing a bowling ball on the end of a stick! That’s the difficult task your neck performs every day as it supports your head.  Your neck is made up of seven cervical vertebrae and depends upon a complex system of supportive soft tissues to function normally.

When your neck is “hurled” in one direction, and then another- ligaments, muscles, and tendons of your neck can stretch too far and tear causing neck pain.

Once the supportive tissues of your neck become loose, torn, or stretched as a result of a whiplash injury, they are no longer able to hold the vertebrae in proper position, causing spinal misalignments.

You should also be aware that auto accidents aren’t the only cause of whiplash injuries.

A sports injury, horseplay, a mild fall any sudden movement that forces your head and neck forward, backward, or sideways can severely injure your neck’s soft tissues.

Vertebral subluxation, or spinal misalignment, can lead to pain, stiffness, muscle spasms, and even limited motion in your joints. Without a full range of motion in your joints, your discs can’t receive the proper “nutrients” necessary for optimal function.

Eventually, the cushioning discs between your vertebrae can thin and bulge. The breakdown of the disc can lead to a chronic neck disability.
