Not All Neck Injuries Are the Same
Neck injuries are really common and they can cause a variety of different symptoms. The most obvious is neck pain, but it can also be associated with headache, dizziness, visual problems, and autonomic problems as well.
Neck pain can come from a variety of injuries, and no two injuries are the same, even if it got injured the same way.
The tissues that are injured depend on how the neck was injured, how strong the neck was at baseline, genetic predisposition to inflammation degeneration, age, and history of previous injuries.
Because of that, different tissues can be injured even if the mechanism of injury is the same. These can include:
• Joint capsule or joint cartilage
