Conditions That May Be Caused by Upper Neck Injuries

Conditions That May Be Caused by Upper Neck Injuries

Spinal trauma, specifically to the neck, can be caused by any traumatic event — a fall, car or motorcycle collision, sport’s injury or bicycle accident.

Regardless of the source, spinal traumas almost always result in vertebral subluxations — misalignments or restriction of vertebrae (spinal bones).  And vertebral subluxations are associated with a vast assortment of health issues, such as headaches, migraines, backaches, neck pain, carpal tunnel syndrome and now many other, more serious, conditions.

Research links vertebral subluxations caused by spinal trauma affecting the upper neck to maladies from Parkinson’s disease to multiple sclerosis.

How could an upper neck injury cause these conditions?  Researchers theorize that vertebral subluxations set up virtual roadblocks within the neck and spinal column.  These roadblocks may alter nerve function and sensation, which may affect every part of the body from the brain to the heart.

The good news is that vertebral subluxations are correctable through chiropractic adjustments, safe and gentle maneuvers employed by doctors of chiropractic.

If you’ve sustained any type of accident — from mild to traumatic — contact your doctor of chiropractic for a complete spinal evaluation.Dr. Barbara Smith
