Auto & Car Accident Injuries

After sustaining whiplash or related injuries in an auto accident, it’s common for people to suffer from chronic neck pain if untreated. At League City Spine & Sports Medicine, we can detect certain factors in a patient’s history and exam to better determine whether a patient may be more susceptible to long term chronic pain from a whiplash injury.

Whiplash is a popular term that describes injury to the neck that occurs as a result of a motor vehicle or car accident. The most common type of car accident is the rear impact, and most typically, the occupant in the vehicle that gets “rear-ended” (hit from behind) is at the greatest risk of injury, including whiplash.

Treatment

The appropriate treatment for whiplash is unique to each whiplash injury and individual. We generally gear treatment toward the primary dysfunctions detected during the exam and history, which includes the mechanisms of injury and ordering of imaging (X-ray, MRI) if clinically warranted. We commonly utilize different treatments for whiplash, including:

  • Manipulation
  • Massage Therapy
  • Moist Heat/Ice
  • Muscle Stimulation
  • Rehabilitation Exercises
  • Ergonomic and Lifestyle Changes
