Why See A Portland Auto Injury Treatment Specialist Today?
Your body has been through a lot, and unfortunately, it can’t always heal itself from the forces of an auto accident. Don’t count on your pain simply disappearing “in time,” and don’t assume that heat and ice or painkillers can provide the therapeutic power you need. Whether your pain is mild or agonizing, it’s time to see a spine and soft tissue specialist to get help right away.
What Is Whiplash?
Many mistakenly categorize whiplash as a minor injury, but that’s far from the truth
Whiplash occurs when your body is traveling at a certain speed within the car and then comes to a slamming halt. The forces placed on your neck and spine cause it to whip back and forth rapidly. Because all the impact is absorbed by the neck and spine, whiplash frequently causes muscle and ligaments to tear, spinal joints to impact and become inflamed, or worst of all, nerve and spinal cord damage. You may notice sharp neck pain or stiffness, shoulder pain, soft tissue swelling, blurred vision, dizziness, and much more.[/ezcol_1half] [ezcol_1half_end][/ezcol_1half_end]
