Diagnosing and Treating Whiplash

Whiplash is one of the most common auto injuries and entails damage to the soft tissues of the neck. Many people think whiplash only occurs in high speed or potentially fatal accidents. However, whiplash can occur from accidents as slow as 5 mph.

The symptoms of whiplash may present themselves a few days or even weeks after the injury, yet waiting until the onset of symptoms to receive treatment can greatly interfere with the speed and ease of your recovery.

At Core Medical Center, we look at postural and structural changes that can be present without symptoms. It’s important to correct these abnormalities as they can lead to long-term injury, unnoticed for years before symptoms begin. When not cared for in time, the result is that the patient may have already began to develop degenerative and sometimes arthritic changes that could have been avoided had they received proper care after the accident.

Symptoms of Whiplash

Symptoms of whiplash can include:

  • Severe headaches
  • Arm pain (due to a possible herniated disc)
  • Low back pain
  • Neck aches
  • In extreme cases of whiplash, symptoms can include:

  • depression
  • insomnia
  • The quicker you receive treatment for your injuries, the easier your full recovery will be. Don’t wait to start your path to healing and contact Core Medical Center today to get answers to your questions.

    Let us help you recover from your auto injury or personal injury today. If you have any further questions about our personal injury care or would like to schedule an appointment, feel free to call (816) 229-7561 today.
