Whiplash Injuries: Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment

Whiplash Injuries: Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment

Auto-related injuries should never be dismissed, even if you don't feel anything immediately because of the adrenaline and the shock, it's very important to seek help to make sure you're all right. If you have lingering or untreated auto accident injuries and want to explore your treatment options, be sure to consult with Dr. Darin Bush of Mobility Spine And Sports in Fort Lauderdale, FL.

Causes and Symptoms

Whiplash, a neck injury, is one of the most common injuries after a car accident. It's caused by the rapid head movements that occur after your body is brought to a sudden stop.

You may feel discomfort around your neck, either immediately after the crash or in the days after. The injury can affect your ability to move your neck and turn your head. These symptoms can impact your ability to perform even basic everyday tasks.


Even low-impact collisions can cause long-lasting injuries, many of which cannot be seen but which you will likely feel in the near future. After a car accident, you have too many things to contend with so it's natural to ignore a slight pain when you have financial and likely legal issues that demand your attention.

But damage to your body after a car accident can affect your muscles, ligaments, and spinal discs, and can lead to scar tissue and chronic pain in the future if it's not addressed.

Treatment for Auto Accident Injuries in Fort Lauderdale, FL

The goals of treatment will include, the reduction or elimination of pain, improvement to your range of motion, and the healing of affected tissue.
