Neck pain from Whiplash Will Get Worse if Not Treated by a Specialist
If you have been in a car accident or involved in a major personal injury, let Core Medical Center help you start on the road to recovery.
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.
