Neck Pain Due To A Car Accident

Neck pain after a car crashSo you’ve been in a car accident, and now have neck pain. It could be mild or it could be severe. Don’t just wait for it to go away on its own.Look at it this way. If your neck hurts and you haven’t had a car accident recently, it may be caused by the position you slept in or some other kind of minor strain.

It could even lead to permanent damage.

Serious neck injuries from car accidents can happen even if you were only going 7 miles an hour. Neck strain or whiplash is caused by a sudden jerking of your neck that pulls and tears at tissue causing damage that results in pain.
