Auto Accident & Whiplash Injuries
Auto accident injuries and whiplash can be insidious, often taking weeks or months to fully manifest. You may experience back or neck pain that diminishes within a few days of your accident, or you may experience no neck pain at all, but the injury is very real, and is a time bomb waiting to explode. Unfortunately, by the time more serious complications develop, some of the damage from the injury may have become permanent. Years after whiplash victims settle their insurance claims, roughly half of them still suffer from their injuries.
How Can I Tell if I Have a Whiplash Injury?
How Long Will Auto Accident Injury Pain Last?
Mild whiplash injuries can start to see improvement quickly and often start to heal within six to nine months. However, more than 20% of those who suffer from whiplash injuries continue to suffer from pain, weakness or restricted movement two years after their accident. Unfortunately, the vast majority of these people will continue to suffer from some level of disability or pain for many years after that, if not for the rest of their lives.
Your treatment options for whiplash injuries depend largely on the type of injury and the extent of the damage, but SpineOne can help you create a long-term treatment and recovery plan that may include short-term pain relief as well as a roadmap to recovering normal joint movement and muscle repair.
