Whiplash & Motor Vehicle Accidents
THE THIEF: WHiplash, Neck pain, Unsteadiness
Every day I meet people just like you who are suffering from whiplash and neck pain. Most are massively frustrated, and it sucks the life from them. Simple tasks become unbearable with a sharp pain that comes on for NO REASON. Unfortunately, most people do the wrong thing following a whiplash injury. Most people just wait and hope it gets better.
You are in some sort of an accident. The accident caused your neck to stretch very quickly. You now have terrible neck pain and your head feels as heavy as a bowling ball. These symptoms make you feel like you are in a constant fog and cannot focus. Simple daily tasks that took no effort before are now exhausting. You feel like your mood and demeanor is different; you are not you. You just want some relief from these symptoms.
More than 3 million cases of whiplash occur every year. More that 1.5 million American suffer from chronic pain from whiplash. Without treatment, more than 50% of people develop chronic symptoms. Interestingly, whiplash can occur in traveling speeds as low as 5 mile per hour. The most common age is between 30-50.
Prompt and proper treatment is vital to help reduce the risk of chronic symptoms. Without treatment, 50% of people can have persistent symptoms. The typical treatment approach is to rest for a couple of weeks. The problem is that every whiplash is different and needs specific treatment and complete rest may, in fact, worsen the outcome. It is crucial to have a thorough assessment of the neck, screened for concussion, screen eye function, and balance and dizzy impairments. If these are not address, persistent problems may occur.
