Whiplash is the most common injury sustained in a car accident. Whiplash occurs when the head and neck are thrown backward and forward unnaturally during an accident. This flexion of the head and neck causes strain on the muscles, ligaments, and spinal cord. If severe, whiplash can lead to chronic pain, headaches, loss of motion, tenderness, tightness, and even secondary injuries such as concussions or head trauma.

If you have been in an accident and are experiencing pain in the neck, shoulders or back, you may be experiencing whiplash. Common symptoms of whiplash include:
Tightness and pain in the upper body can be a sign of whiplash. Muscles may feel tense or knotted.
Difficulty turning your head from side to side or up and down can indicate signs of whiplash.
Whiplash can prohibit a normal range of motion. If you experience pain when trying to make normal movements, this could be a sign of whiplash.
Persisting headaches that begin at the base of the skull and radiate forward through the temples and forehead are key indicators of whiplash.
Muscles may feel sore and tender to the touch. If your neck is strained you may experience tenderness associated with a sprain.
Tinnitus, or constant ringing in the ears, may indicate that some form of injury has occurred in the neck region. Sometimes, it may be indicative of damage to the inner ear.
If you feel light-headed or uneasy on your feet, you may be experiencing side-effects of whiplash. Given the proximity of the neck muscles and tendons to the inner ear, stress in these areas can result in dizziness.
Decreased range of motion may be indicative of whiplash. If you experience trouble moving your neck, shoulders or arms whiplash may be the cause.
Head trauma can effect cognition. If you have experienced whiplash, you may have trouble remembering things or may struggle with absentmindedness. These symptoms can all be signs of head injury due to whiplash.
Episodes of unclear vision may indicate whiplash. Or, sustained blurriness may be an indicator of greater injuries as a result of an accident.
The initial pain associated with whiplash often subsides over time. However, medical experts know that some whiplash injuries can lead to months or years of prolonged pain.
Being involved in an accident is scary, no matter how severe your injuries are. When you have experienced whiplash, you may not be able to tell whether your injuries are temporary or will effect you for years to come. The good news is, with appropriate medical care – such as physical therapy, and in some cases, surgery – recovery is possible.

Mr. Pines asked me whether I was in the same shape as before my accident – this I had to deny. My back was still hurting and he stated that, if I would accept his services, he would ensure that I would get the therapy I needed […] and that all bills would be paid and my health restored. Michael Pines and his team have kept this promise.
My friend recommended Michael Pines to me and I was super happy. They took very good care of me, treated me very nice, and I got a very nice check. I had a lot of back pain and the doctor they referred me to helped me so much! I didn’t have to pay anything when I was getting treatment. I was so happy, that I’ve referred another friend to Michael pines.
