Even a minor automobile accident can have major effects on your health!
When one automobile is struck by another, thousands of pounds of force are exerted on the neck and spine.
Whiplash occurs when the head, neck and back are thrown or “snapped” back and forth very quickly.
The painful result is injury to the ligaments, soft tissue, and discs of the neck and spine.
Whiplash also causes impingement, stretching, or irritation of the nerves and the spinal cord.
Timely treatment by experienced physical therapists can make recovery a lot faster.
Patients who are involved in a motor vehicle accident suffer from various musculo-skeletal injuries which can include:
- Whiplash injuries
- Sprains and strains of ligaments and muscles
- Low back pain
