The most common injuries from car accidents are neck injuries. The safety systems in a car are designed to mitigate damage to the rest of the body, but unfortunately, your neck is very susceptible to whiplash if you are rear-ended or if you have to come to a stop abruptly. The neck itself is a very sensitive and delicate part of the body that can be of great concern when injuries occur. Like most people know, your spinal cord runs through the center of your neck and there isn’t much protection when it comes to bone density around the neck. That’s why when you see a serious car accident or any other kind of accident the first thing the EMTs will do is try to stabilize the neck with a neck stabilizer. Those stabilizers are designed to keep the neck bones in place so that they don’t do any additional damage to the spinal cord. Injuries to the spinal cord can vary and if you’ve sustained an injury to the neck or spinal cord you should see a doctor right away.
