What is whiplash?
Whiplash, which is also called neck sprain or neck strain, can often come as a result of an event such as a car accident. The pain is deep and throbbing and seems to take a long time to disappear.
Even though car accidents are the most common cause of whiplash, it also can occur from head banging, bicycle falls, and even from riding horses. Many times, whiplash is known as an acceleration to deceleration injury, which means that it occurs when you are moving quickly but must stop suddenly, which causes the neck and head to jar forward while the body stays still.
Common symptoms of whiplash include pain in the neck and back, tingling in the arms and legs, and even headaches. Those who have whiplash often experience symptoms days after the initial injury has occurred. Severe whiplash can even cause damage to the cerebrum if left untreated. More often than not, whiplash is a short-term condition that can cause neck pain but does not tend to cause any long-term damage to the patient’s neck or spine.
How is whiplash treated?
The condition may be treated with Calmare® Therapy, a non-narcotic, non-invasive medical procedure for the treatment of chronic pain. For more information about Calmare® Therapy, please click here.
Who is a candidate for treatment?
The course of treatment that is best for you will be determined by your doctor, who will ask you about your medical history and any other conditions you may be experiencing. You will want to tell him about the type of pain you have, where it is located, when the pain started, and if anything happened to cause the pain.
What is the recovery process?
Your recovery process will be dependent on several factors, including your overall health, your age, your quality of life, and the severity of your condition. To speed your healing process, you will want to follow your doctor’s advice, which may include rest. You may require other measures as well depending on the severity of the condition, but you will want to take it easy for the few weeks following the pain occurrence.
Patients are under medical management during the recovery phase with an emphasis on minimizing and reducing pharmaceutical usage.
