fibromyalgia information

Why do so many people involved in car accidents develop fibromyalgia ?

In any serious car accident the sudden impact will cause the body to do two things: First, the body and head will move in opposite directions, causing the head to jerk suddenly backward (hyperextension) and forward (hyperflexion). Then, the neck muscles stiffen in an effort to prevent serious injury to the spinal chord and brain, which can cause tearing or the muscles, and stretching of ligaments and muscles in the back of the neck. In short, there is a lot of muscle trauma involved in most car accidents, particularly rear end collisions associated with whiplash.
