Whiplash Treatment In Broomfield

Whiplash is probably the most common and well known injury  from a car accident. Symptoms may take hours, days or weeks to appear. They can include:

  • Sore of stiff neck
  • Headaches
  • Pain, numbness, or tingling in the back, arms, shoulders, and hands
  • Reduced ability to move the head
  • Ringing in the ears, dizziness, hearing loss, or blurred vision

Whiplash can be a major injury, even if the damage to the car was minimal. Whiplash can cause permanent spinal damage. Often, whiplash injuries that are dismissed as minor initially end up causing lifelong health problems. Trauma to the spine, no matter how small, can disturb the normal position of vertebrae, affecting surrounding muscles, ligaments and discs. The vertebrae protect the spinal cord so even a small disturbance can have an adverse effect on the nerve tissue.

Many patients leave the emergency room with a diagnosed or an undiagnosed whiplash injury and never receive treatment for the condition again. Not getting a whiplash injury treated properly causes a degenerative chain reaction resulting in many underlying health problems and can slowly grow worse with time and even destroy good health.

Treatment for whiplash injuries vary depending on the severity of the condition. Dr. Manteris is a trauma trained expert in the treatment of Whiplash.
