HAVE YOU BEEN IN A CAR ACCIDENT?

Being involved in a car accident is a stressful experience, especially when the accident results in injury. Because the injuries that occur can be complex, and because the pain associated with them does not always become apparent immediately, the care you seek must be highly specialized.

Whiplash is a type of injury to the muscles and ligaments of the spine that occurs when the head is quickly whipped backward and then forward. Most often, whiplash injuries occur during car accidents. When the head is jerked backward and then forward, it causes increased forces and tension on the tiny muscles and ligaments that surround and support the spine. Whiplash can even occur in low-speed car accidents under 20 miles per hour. Left untreated, whiplash can cause long-term stiffness, instability, and neck pain.
