What is Whiplash?
Whiplash can occur when the head suddenly jerks backward or forward, usually due to an accident. It can also be precipitated by another type of blow such as that received when engaging in football or other impact sports. The neck muscles and tendons get stretched and torn, and then the neck becomes sore. When a patient comes to our Orlando Pain Clinic with symptoms of neck pain, we often find signs of whiplash associated with the injury.
Symptoms & Signs of Whiplash
There are several uncomfortable signs of whiplash, and they all include pain. At Innovative Pain Solutions, we address these issues quickly so that the client can be free of the pain of whiplash. The following symptoms may indicate the presence of a whiplash, particularly if you’ve recently experienced head trauma.
- Headaches that originate at the top of the neck and radiate to the forehead
- Knotted muscles, neck pain, stiff neck, decreased range of motion in the neck
- Inability to look over your shoulder without pain
- Pain when moving your head back and forth, or from side to side
If you’ve been involved in an accident, you may have experienced whiplash. If you’re close to our Orlando pain clinic (Innovative Pain Solutions) we can help you overcome these issues and resume your normal routine.
Your degree of whiplash can vary depending on the severity of the accident, and side impact collisions are some of the worst. Even a low-impact collision can cause severe damage that results in significant pain to the individual. Don’t ignore the signs of whiplash because you think you were only involved in a minor collision.
If you experience dizziness, weakness, confusion, or lose consciousness, you should immediately consult with your medical professional since these may indicate the presence of other issues.
At our Orlando pain clinic, we specializes in techniques that are minimally invasive and non-invasive. Our state of the art equipment enables us to pinpoint the cause of our patient’s pain and treat it with utmost accuracy and efficiency.
Whiplash pain is very complex and can radiate to other areas of the body if left untreated. We combine modalities in our treatment protocols so that the patients receive a treatment that is specifically tailored to their needs. We believe that each patient’s injury is unique to their situation so we combine the latest techniques with the latest research and the most current treatment modalities so that each patient’s pain is treated in the best manner for him or her.
Dr. Kalia’s dedication to his patients ensures that he’s abreast of the latest research and technological improvements, and his background in anesthesiology enables him to prescribe medication if necessary. Our office is very soothing and we ensure that our patients receive our undivided attention when they come in.
