The Impact of Whiplash

While “whiplash” is not a medical term, it typically refers to the injuries that occur when your upper vertebral column, upper back, neck, and head are thrown suddenly backward then forward upon impact. This sudden movement is most commonly triggered by the impact of a rear-end car accident. When the head and neck are forced backward and then forward, the abrupt movement forces the joints beyond their normal range of movement. What results are injuries are made to muscles, ligaments, tendons, and/or fascia of the cervical spine (or neck area)

Injuries resulting from whiplash are problematic because the resulting symptoms interfere with our daily lives. Symptoms of whiplash include neck pain, neck stiffness, dizziness, headache, and memory loss. However, these symptoms don’t always appear immediately. While you may feel fine immediately after a car accident, the pain often sets in once the adrenaline has faded.

Early treatment of whiplash is essential to a faster recovery and the prevention of worsening or lasting damage. Treatment should be guided by a physician with car accident physical therapy in Brandon, FL. In the meantime, adequate rest, intermittent use of ice packs and heat pads, as well as anti-inflammatory medication may help alleviate pain.
