Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction
Whiplash, also known as Cervical Acceleration Deceleration Syndrome (CAD) occurs when the neck and head are suddenly forced backward and then forward, putting the cervical spine through quick motions and extreme stresses.
Whiplash most commonly occurs with motor vehicle accidents when rear-ended. However, high impact activities such as skiing, equestrian events, football, bungee jumping, roller coasters, and assault can also cause whiplash or whiplash related injuries. Even a slip and fall can cause whiplash!
Whiplash symptoms may occur immediately after the acceleration-deceleration event or can occur hours to days after the event. Common symptoms include:
The goal of PT for whiplash is to help reduce muscle spasms, increase blood circulation, and promote healing of the neck tissues.
Generally, auto insurance policies will cover your physical therapy care after you have sustained injuries from an automobile accident. In auto and personal injuries, we focus on pain control and strengthening to help our patients return to a normal lifestyle. We work with local medical doctors in the coordination of care. Miller Concierge PT also coordinates with attorneys to assist their clients in recovering from their injuries. We accept letters of protection (LOP) from attorneys and are able to get medical records returned in a professional, timely manner. If a patient requires auto and personal injury attorneys, we have a list of qualified and experienced attorneys available for referral.
Don't be afraid to reach out for help - it could be the best decision you make. You deserve to find relief from your worries, and a therapist can help you do just that.
