In the event that you have had an automobile accident, a whiplash injury should be taken seriously. Since the symptoms of whiplash can take weeks to months to appear, you might feel that you are fine when, in fact, you are injured more than you think.
Again and again individuals don't seek care because they just don't feel injured. A whiplash injury, by far, is the most common neck injury after a car accident. Whiplash is not really a diagnosis but a mechanism of injury. It is when the head suddenly moves forward, backward or sideways in relationship to the torso. As a result, injury to the muscles, ligaments and joints occur in the neck and mid-back.
Sadly, when symptoms develop, the harm may already be done. Several studies have shown that nearly half of whiplash victims who settle their insurance claims years after their accident, continue to have symptoms from their injuries. If you have been in a car accident, don't delay getting care if you currently don't have any symptoms. Call us today!
