Neck Pain Common After Sports Collisions.

A recent study found that a third of high school athletes who experience a sport-related collision report acute neck pain, and these individuals tend to experience more concussion-related symptoms. The authors conclude that concussed athletes with neck pain should be screened for injury to the neck. Doctors of chiropractic are trained to assess patients with neck pain following whiplash-related trauma from sports collision, slip and falls, and motor vehicle collisions.
