WHIPLASH

Whiplash is a neck injury due to a severe, forceful, and sudden back-and-forth movement of the neck like a whip. Whiplash occurs most often during a car accident, but the injury can also result from a sports accident, physical abuse, or other trauma. A sudden jerk can injure bones in the spine, disks between the bones, ligaments, muscles, nerves, and other tissues of the neck.

TREATMENT OPTIONS

Treatment options for whiplash include icing the neck, prescriptions, massage therapy, MRIs, and PNF stretching. Symptoms of whiplash don't always show up right away. If you have been in a car accident or suffered a sports injury, we recommend seeing one of our physicians for a complete evaluation. For severe pain, our doctors may administer an MRI to assess damage or inflammation in the soft tissues, spinal cord, or nerves. Medication may be prescribed and physical therapy may be recommended to help you recover and rebuild strength and flexibility.
