Whiplash is the most common form of neck injury sustained during a car accident. These injuries can be minor and cause minimal discomfort or be more severe with a high level of pain and disability. A whiplash is a form of neck strain that affects the deep muscles and ligament of the neck. Whiplash presentation and severity highly vary from individuals. At Toward Health we provide tailored diagnosis and management for whiplash to help bring function back to the neck and decrease pain levels.
Common symptoms of whiplash:
– Decrease neck movement and mobility.
– Pain and spasm around the neck and shoulder.
– Acute or chronic neck pain with stiffness.
