CORAL SPRINGS, FL - If you have been involved in a significant automobile accident in Coral Springs or beyond, whiplash injuries need to be taken very seriously -- and you should stay aware of how your body is feeling and functioning after the crash.

Although some symptoms will begin immediately, other symptoms of a whiplash injury are not immediate and can take days or weeks to fully manifest.

The most common injury from motor vehicle collision to the neck is a whiplash injury.

Whiplash is caused by a sudden movement of the head, either backward, forward, or sideways, that may result in damage to the supporting muscles, ligaments, and other connective tissues in the neck and upper back. It is a sprain and strain injury to the cervical spine and the surrounding soft tissue.

If you have been in a motor vehicle or any other kind of accident, and your symptoms have been lingering even after self-medicating, ice applications, heat applications, and stretching -- contact us today to evaluate and treat your injury.
