Recent auto injury have you feeling not quite up to your normal activities? Maybe you have been recently in a car accident and just want to be checked to make sure no injury has occurred. Car accidents and whiplash injuries should be taken seriously as symptoms can take weeks to manifest with some individuals. Whiplash is often not treated as people don’t feel hurt immediately following the car accident. This can be a mistake as fifty percent of whiplash victim’s report they suffer with symptoms from their auto injury years after the auto accident occurred.
Whiplash injuries involve a sudden movement of the neck and head whether it is forward, backwards, or sideways. This movement results in muscles, ligaments, disc, and other supporting tissues of the neck to be damaged. These tissues when left to heal on their own will develop adhesions, scar tissue, loss of flexibility and decreased strength. The result is a weaker neck and upper back setting you up for future injuries and problems.
