In order to help with the financial, physical and emotional trauma that you may encounter after an accident, we focus on the details of your case.
What Are Soft Tissue Injuries/Whiplash?
The force of an auto collision may cause the connective tissue, ligaments, tendons and muscles, to rip, stretch and tear. Such damage is often referred to as a soft tissue injury, and can include sprains, strains and contusions. These injuries may be hard to diagnose, as they may not appear on common screening tests.
If you were involved in a rear-end accident, you may suffer from whiplash. This serious neck injury occurs when the jolt of a collision causes the neck and spine to curve in an abnormal manner. Whiplash has been linked to other physical issues, including herniated disks, chronic pain, cognitive dysfunction and joint issues. While some whiplash trauma cannot be reversed, medical professionals may be able to repair the damage through various treatments and procedures.
Identifying The Signs
Being able to identify the signs of whiplash and soft tissue damage is vital. Although each case is unique, you may experience the following:
- Jaw, neck and/or back pain
- Limited range of motion
- Tingling in the extremities
In some cases, may find it hard to walk or use the injured area of the body.
