Whiplash Causes & Treatments
Most often associated with and caused by auto accidents, whiplash can be caused by any impact or blow to the head that causes neck strain. As the head whips forward and backward, the muscles and tendons in the neck can be stretched or even torn. This can cause severe neck pain, decreased range of motion in the neck, and headaches.
Depending on the case, whiplash treatment may include:
- Initially, cold compresses to the affected area of the neck;
- Moist heat to the neck after 2-3 days of icing the area;
- Neck brace or collar to support the neck;
- Pain and muscle relaxant medications;
- Massage; and
- Chiropractic care.
Whiplash may take days, weeks, or even months to heal. During this time, you may rack up medical bills and lose a considerable amount of money if you are unable to work. Let our Louisville car accident attorneys pursue financial compensation to cover your losses. We will work toward a fair settlement or award that helps you put your life back together.
