45% AMERICAN ADULTS WITH CHRONIC NECK PAIN ATTRIBUTE IT TO MOTOR VEHICLE COLLISIONS

Most lay people believe DCs have only limited college education and do not study traditional medical subject matter. That sort of misinformed bias is the very thing that allows bills, such as this new one in Florida, to make it into law. The flip side of this dualism in the area of education concerns motor vehicle trauma. And, yes, it’s acknowledged that there is also sports medicine, pediatrics, and other avenues of potential enlightenment, but whiplash injuries constitute a major public health problem today-larger than ever before in motoring history. They leave millions of persons with chronic neck pain every year. We showed, in fact, that as much as 45% of American adults with chronic neck pain attributes it to motor vehicle collisions (Freeman MD, Croft AC, Rossignol AM, Centeno CJ, Elkins WL. Chronic neck pain and whiplash: A case-control study of the relationship between acute whiplash injuries and chronic neck pain. Pain Res Manag 2006;11(2):79-83).

These types of neck pain often improve with time and with non-surgical care such as medications and chiropractic manipulation. ”
