Whiplash Injuries Resulting From Car Accidents
Driving an automobile is a privilege that is given after examination. However, this testing does not negate the possibility of being involved in an accident. People are not always careful when driving because they might not be obedient to traffic laws. For example, driving while intoxicated, running red lights, and speeding laws are often broken. Some drivers may not be the cause of accidents, but they can be the victims of collisions. When accidents occur, injuries, such as whiplash are often the result. Whiplash injuries are common from impact with other vehicles, particularly rear-end collisions. A whiplash is a non-fatal injury that can cause pain to several areas of the neck and back. Sometimes, the pain is so severe that it doesn't dissipate easily. When a whiplash has occurred, several medical doctors, and/or chiropractic services may be necessary to assist with the healing process. Patients can suffer from whiplash for several weeks or years depending on the severity. Besides the expected symptoms of a whiplash injury, there are some not so obvious symptoms as well. Some common symptoms may include: -dizziness -stiffness (tightness) in the neck -dull or non-sharp neck pain -headaches -equilibrium and balance problems -back pain/chronic back pain -problems concentrating -memory problems These are just a few types of whiplash injuries that can happen as a result of a collision. What usually causes a whiplash is when the head and neck are suddenly snapped backward then forward. A whiplash is also known as a cervical acceleration/deceleration-injury event. Untreated, whiplash associated disorders (WAD) could worsen and become a bigger problem later. Treatment for whiplash is varied according to the severity of the injury. Methods of treatment could include a neck brace to limit neck motion, muscle relaxers and massage therapy, for example. Often, because of adrenalin and other factors, the initial injury may not be felt until a couple days later when the body is more relaxed. It is important that medical personnel be contacted as soon as possible.
