One of the most devastating things about being in an auto accident is the shearing effect upon your spinal structures. The force of your car or truck being changed suddenly by an accident with your head in space and impact of the seat upon the curvatures of your spine cause acute spinal subluxations, tissue damage and neurological dysfunction. The body being pushed suddenly by the force of impact with the head in space causes the damaging shearing upon your spinal structures and tissues. Often the less damage your car or truck absorbs, no visible damage, means more forces to your body occur. In either case if your body was suddenly jolted forward by your vehicle and your head and spine are sheared due to the force then injures occur. If pre-existing factors such as prior injuries, arthritis, loss of curvature, improper head rest position, turned head at impact and many others are present at the time of the accident than you are more likely to be injured than someone else. So, many factors are involved in auto accidents that a proper history and evaluation is needed to determine the extent of your injuries.
