New research is showing that whiplash occurs in nearly every car accident – even minor, seemingly harmless accidents. Further investigation is also showing that unresolved car accident injuries, like whiplash, are contributing to increased rates of disability later in life.
Whiplash is a serious injury that often occurs in car accidents due to sudden movements of the head and neck. Pain, discomfort or reduced flexibility is often the result of small tears that occur in muscles, ligaments and tendons. The tearing that occurs often leads to swelling and inflammation. The whiplash injury will eventually lead to the formation of scar tissue in muscles and spinal joints.
Pain killers, muscle relaxers and anti-inflammatory medications are often the prescribed course of treatment for whiplash. But, this course of treatment can give a false sense of recovery. If not properly addressed by a whiplash expert, chronic symptoms and mild to severe disability will often manifest later in life.
“People don’t realize how easily the body is damaged in even the smallest of car accidents. We are here to help people understand that, and resolve their injuries as quickly as possible.” says Dr. Wattenbarger.
Common symptoms from a whiplash injury can include headaches, neck pain, back pain, disc pain, numbness and tingling, stiffness, as well as muscle tension or loss of flexibility.
Offering a variety of therapeutic interventions, the whiplash experts are a community resource unlike any other. When it comes to getting results that surpass conventional or traditional treatment, the Maximized Health Pain and Injury Clinic is now at your service.
