Whiplash is one of the most common injuries after a car accident. Many people in Bradenton, Florida that have been involved in a car accident suffer from Whiplash injuries and do not seek the proper treatment. If this injury is not treated properly, complications can arise that can further worsen the injury to your neck. That is why it is important to seek medical attention after a Whiplash injury due to a car accident.
What Are the Symptoms of Whiplash?
Neck pain and stiffness 24 hours after a car accident is generally the symptoms you will have. There are also more symptoms if the injury goes untreated such as:
- Ringing in ears
- Trouble concentrating
- Blurred Vision
- Memory Issues
- Fuzzy Thinking
What Type of Treatment is There for Whiplash?
After a sudden injury to the neck, many patients do not feel the need to seek medical attention. This is due to the adrenaline after the car accident. When your body goes into flight or flight mode hormones are released (adrenaline and cortisol) to prevent pain. Over the next few days the swelling will start and will cause stiffness and soreness. The neck has 26 muscles and a collision due to a car accident can aggravate them. Manasota Accident and Injury Center specializes in treating Whiplash injuries that are due to auto accidents.
