Auto accidents and other personal injury accidents can cause traumatic injuries which may not be apparent right away. If your injury was significant in nature and directly caused by the accident, then muscles, soft tissues, ligaments, joints, discs, and possibly bone may be damaged.
When you are involved in an impact collision, your neck and spine typically experiences moderate hyper-extension force, and then hyper-flexion force. When damage from this force occurs to these spinal structures, inflammation and altered movement can last for weeks, months and even years if not addressed and treated properly. If not properly treated, your body will try to heal itself in a less than ideal way by laying down scar tissue. This causes the muscles that were damaged to become either chronically weakened or tight. If these injuries are not addressed and treated, the biomechanics of the region will be altered for the long term. Most of the time, treatment is a necessity because your pain level may be too intense not to seek treatment.
