Car Accidents, Injuries, and Whiplash in Miami?
Auto accidents are often frightening events that can lead to injuries and effects that can last a lifetime. Whiplash is one of the most common auto injuries and entails damage to the soft tissues(muscles, ligaments, discs, and fascia) of the neck.
Many people think whiplash only occurs in high speed or potentially fatal accidents. However, whiplash can occur from accidents as slow as 5 mph!!
The majority of people assume low speed or minimum damage to a vehicle correlates with damage to the passengers. Unfortunately there is no direct correlation between damage to a vehicle and injuries.
The Whiplash symptoms may present themselves a few days or even weeks after the injury, yet waiting until the onset of symptoms to receive treatment can greatly interfere with the speed and ease of your recovery.
Accident victims are often released from the hospital after being cleared of any fractures or dislocations and prescribed pain killers, muscle relaxers, and ant-inflammatory drugs.
These drugs are only masking the symptoms and not treating your specific injuries.
Ligament damage and instability are not properly tested or diagnosed in most hospitals due to time and severity of most life emergency conditions in the emergency room.
This ligament damage is often the source of your pain and discomfort.
The spinal damage often goes undetectable leading to many chronic spinal conditions and loss of quality of life.
Symptoms of whiplash and injury can include:
- Neck Pain
- Shoulder/Arm/Hand Pain
- Numbness and Tingling
- Mid back Pain
- Chest and Rib Pain
- Low Back Pain
- Hip and Leg Pain
- Difficulty Concentrating
- Blurred Vision
