In order to detect what happens to your head during a collision, you are required to think about a ball which is placed on top of a spring. If ever you will experience a rear end collision your lower part of the body will be pushed forward because of the impact, while your head will tend to go back due to inertia.

In such cases, before being propelled forward by the rest of the body the head often goes to what is known as 'hyper-extension' mode. In the majority of such cases where this happens people often sustain neck injuries.

The most usual neck injury caused because of a collision is termed as whiplash. In medical terms, it is termed as cervical hyperextension. You can easily get a treatment for the personal injury in North port as there are so many experienced chiropractors over there who are really good at their job.

Chiropractic care has proved itself to be one of the most effective treatments out there, contrary to what you may have heard earlier. Obviously, a chiropractor will only start treatment once a patient has gone through a complete checkup which in most cases also comprises x-rays.

Re-aligning the vertebrae is the chiropractor's key goal and a chiropractor also helps in maintaining the alignment so that the subtle tissues which surround the spinal cord have adequate time to heal. One should always keep in mind that if the vertebrae are not aligned properly, the tissues will continue to heal even though the vertebrae are misaligned.
