If you have been involved in a car accident, whiplash injuries need to be taken very seriously. Because symptoms of a whiplash injury can take weeks or months to manifest, it is easy to be fooled into thinking that you are not as injured as you really are. Too often people don't seek treatment following a car accident because they don't feel hurt. By far, the most common injury to the neck is a whiplash injury.Whiplash is caused by a sudden movement of the head, either backward, forward, or sideways, that results in the damage to the supporting muscles, ligaments and other connective tissues in the neck and upper back.
Unfortunately, by the time more serious complications develop, some of the damage from the injury may have become permanent.

After the Accident
So you've been in an accident. You've already called your insurance company and they have recommended a place for you to take your car for an estimate of damage. The car is only dented and is certainly still driveable, but the insurance company knows it can save money if the problem is handled immediatly.
But what about you? You may only a little banged up from the accident, but are you sure nothing more than a few bruises is the result? Some injuries take hours or days to appear, and by then scar tissue, stiffness, or other symptoms of injury may have occurred. Do you not deserve the same timely treatment that you car does? The resulting instability of the spine and soft tissues can contribute to headache, dizziness, TMJ, blurred vision, shoulder and arm pain, low back problems, pain down the leg.
