Even being involved in just a minor fender bender can cause injury and trauma to your neck. Although most people recover from car accident injuries, some will remain symptomatic for years later.
Whiplash and Automobile Accidents
Whiplash injury is one of the most commonly acquired neck conditions caused by an automobile accident that is also often mistreated or even ignored. It is caused by sudden forceful head movement and can occur in even a minor accident. It can result in tears to your ligaments or damage to the surrounding connective tissues and muscles and can cause chronic pain.
Our Atlanta orthopedic doctors are trained and ready to help in your early detection and treatment of these injuries to ensure that you have increased mobility and reduction in pain symptoms.
