Treatment for Car Accident Injuries and Whiplash
One of the most common injuries from a car accident is whiplash. Whiplash occurs when a sudden, jarring movement of the head is sustained backward, forward or even to the side. Whiplash destabilizes the spine and causes severe pain. Other symptoms of spinal injury due to a car wreck can include:
- Blurred vision
• Neck pain
• Shoulder pain
• Reduced range of motion in the neck
• Arm pain
• Neck stiffness
• Low back pain
