Whiplash Injury 101

One of the most common injuries resulting from car accidents is whiplash, an injury to the neck. Known clinically as an “acceleration/deceleration injury,” whiplash (80% of car crash injuries), may not appear to be a serious problem at first.

A rear-end collision that occurs at low speed can deliver such a force that causes the head to jerk and be stretched beyond its normal range of motion, straining the muscles and ligaments of the neck during a whiplash injury. Whiplash can even cause fractures to the cervical spine (neck). Such injuries are painful causing time off of work and normal day to day activities.

Physicians can run a number of tests to detect whiplash. Accident victims may not believe they are injured on the day of a car accident. A adrenaline rush can cause a person to overlook bodily injury. Symptoms, can include joint dysfunction, disc herniation, and chronic pain and, difficulty functioning.

Immediate medical treatment is the best way to address whiplash symptoms.

Symptoms — Listen to your body:

  • Pain areas: in the arm, back, muscles, neck, or shoulder
  • Whole body: dizziness or vertigo
  • Also common: difficulty focusing, headache, muscle spasms, nerve injury, sensation of pins and
  • needles, stiff neck, or tenderness

Whiplash Treatments Include:

  • Anti-inflammatory medications
  • muscle relaxants
  • trigger point injections
  • epidural spinal injections

Whiplash 101 – Neck Injury

If you’ve been injured in a car accident and have developed symptoms of whiplash it is imperative that you seek medical attention from a pain specialist that specializes in treating pain and injury from an auto wreck. You may require physical therapy and rehabilitation. Choosing a doctor with experience, who understands the mechanisms of your injury and long term effects is crucial to recovery.

Living with chronic pain? Tell us where it hurts.

Accidents, especially work related and moving vehicle accidents can spiral anyone who is injured into a new world of chronic pain where the body and the mind are equally effected. The pain can last a life-time. Chronic pain — years down the line the injury has healed of course, but the pain from that injury continues.

Statistics have shown that chronic pain afflicts nearly 100 million people in the United States, more than a third of the population, according to the Society for Neuroscience, the world’s largest organization of brain researchers.

Chronic pain remains misunderstood, misdiagnosed and mistreated. Research suggests that as many as half the country’s pain patients are not getting the proper treatment.

Located in New York State are board certified physicians who may not be able to fully erase the pain, but can reduce the pain an individual feels to a bearable level. MSR doctors can help.

Statistically in the United States alone, lower back pain strikes two-thirds of adults. Chronic pain lingers in about 15 percent of cases, leaving 7 million people partially or completely disabled.

MSR provides referrals to pain specialists in New York in Brooklyn, the Bronx, Queens, Manhattan, and Long Island, that provide the highest quality of care for chronic pain sufferers. These doctors take the time to talk and listen to the patient, with patience and sensitivity, implementing the right treatments necessary to start the healing process and relieve chronic pain.

Workers injured in the workplace are often not taken seriously when complaining of the pain they feel. The are put under a spotlight and targeted when they are unable to perform their jobs to full capacity due to the pain they feel. Pain that goes untreated, can rage out of control causing both mental and physical disability.

Patients suffering chronic pain can no longer just grin and bear it, chronic pain is real, chronic pain is a disease. If a patient doesn’t not receive proper treatment, and the symptoms continue for too long, a patient can spiral out of control. Patients can lose their jobs, their relationships, their lives.
