Neck pain is often inevitable during a truck accident. This generally comes about due to the speed of the collision. The trucks and other vehicles are going at such fast speeds that when they stop the inertia pushes people forward.

Then, they slam into something in the car or truck and sprain, strain, or break something. Sometimes, it’s difficult to know if you are really hurt or not. It’s always a good idea to consult your chiropractor is you have any pain.  Here are some common neck injuries that people experience from truck accidents across Charlotte, NC:

  • A herniated disc in the new:  Herniated disc in the neck is one of the most serious problems that can emerge from a truck accident. It occurs when something bad happens in the cushion between the bones in the spine.
  • Whiplash: Whiplash happens when the neck and head are quickly thrust back and forth. This causes pain throughout the general region of the body and can manifest in several different ways.
  • Sprain/Strain: Truck accident victims strain their neck or back when they damage muscles, tendons, or parts of the body that connect tendons or muscles.
