Whiplash Injury Treatment

Whiplash May Lead To Chronic Pain If Not Properly Treated

Whiplash is a common car accident injury. It is a soft tissue injury that occurs because of sudden snapping back and forth (rapid flexion and extension) of the head and neck.

These extreme motions push your neck muscles and ligaments beyond their range of motion.

Symptoms of whiplash may be delayed for a minimum of 24 hours and up to a week after the initial trauma.

Whiplash can occur at minimal speed (as little as 5 mph) – so even a “Fender Bender” can cause headaches, vertigo, back pain and more.

Car accidents may lead to chronic pain if not properly treated.

  • Low back pain
  • Vertigo

  • Fatigue
  • Neck pain and stiffness
  • Headaches
