Selecting a professional in a personal injury matter is a very important decision. As physicians who are specifically familiar with the management of accidental injuries, Stanger Health Care Centers can treat your injuries and refer you to the best personal injury lawyers in Florida.
Have you or someone you know been injured in an auto accident and told it's whiplash? Such injuries are extremely painful and can be persistent. In fact, recovery is certain if the proper treatment is given. But pain, the most common symptom of whiplash, can become chronic if not given prompt attention.
During the first few days after an accident pain alerts the body to avoid movement. That's why the neck becomes stiff with inflammation and spasms occur. Pain can also involve the shoulders and arms. Fingers too, can "tingle" from pressure and pinching of nerves in the neck. Headaches are frequent complications to whiplash injury.
A common result of car accidents and injuries involving motion, whiplash occurs when impact propels the head in one direction and muscles and tendons "snap" the head another way.

As car accidents happen more frequently today and at higher speeds, whiplash injuries have become nearly routine on local roads and highways.
The injury itself is never routine. However, it is sometimes overlooked by the family practitioner or emergency room doctor. Their training and experience leads them to immediate concern for shock, possible broken bones and mending of acute abrasions. Unless neck injury is readily apparent and victims express feelings of pain, whiplash can get low priority in the hospital emergency room.
Then too, symptoms can occur immediately or not present themselves for weeks or months following the event.
