Motor Vehicle Accidents/Whiplash

Whiplash is a violent, fast, forward and back motion of the neck that causes a stretching injury to the ligaments that protect the spinal cord. In addition, muscles in the neck, mid-back and posterior shoulder can also spasm while protecting the nerves and spinal cord. These spasms are painful and can be treated with manual physical therapy. Our therapists are well trained in releasing active trigger points and decreasing the tissue reactivity. Active treatments are shown to be more effective than passive alone, and we are up on the latest exercises or active treatments to restore your range of motion and strength after a car accident.
