Neck injuries from auto accidents are notorious for flying under the radar for hours or even days, but sooner than later victims will notice pain and stiffness in their neck that may be accompanied by headaches.
These are often tall tale signs of a condition known as whiplash. Whiplash is the result of collision that throws your body in one direction and your head in another.
This “bobblehead” effect puts an immense amount of strain on your neck that injures muscles, ligaments, tendons, and blood vessels. This condition doesn’t just take place in serious car accidents, but can easily take place in a parking lot as well.
In fact, a collision as slow as 5 miles per hour can cause whiplash. Dr. Mendola has a significant amount of experience working with patients who suffer from whiplash.
He uses diagnostic tools to gain an understanding of the injury and then treats the sufferer to restore the neck to its proper curvature. This corrects the pinched nerves or misaligned vertebrae and stimulates the body’s natural healing process. If you’re suffering from neck pain contact our office today.
