Sarasota Whiplash Treatment

Comprehensive Care for Neck Injuries

Whiplash is exactly what it sounds like - a neck injury caused by a quick move forward followed by a rapid move backward. It most commonly affects people in cars who were hit by someone from behind, though it can also result from sports injuries and other accidents. Whiplash is a serious injury that should be treated right away. Unfortunately, the symptoms of whiplash do not always manifest right after the injury occurs, so not everyone is aware they have it until they start feeling complications. If you were in an accident that had a whiplash effect on your neck, you should schedule a visit with a physician as soon as possible.

At Platinum Healthcare, we provide comprehensive care and treatment for whiplash injuries. We are renown in the Sarasota for treating injuries and chronic pain without the use of surgery or medication.

Symptoms & Treatments for Whiplash

The symptoms of whiplash typically show up within 24 hours of the injury. However, this is not always the case, so you should keep an eye out for symptoms for the next few days if you had a whiplash-like injury. Because the neck contains many nerves and is connected to the spinal cord, the symptoms of whiplash can have far-reaching effects on your body.

Symptoms of whiplash can include:

  • Neck pain
  • Difficulty moving the neck
  • Dizziness
  • Blurry vision
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Headaches that start from the base of the skull
  • Numb or tingling feelings in the arms
  • Sleep problems
  • Difficulty concentrating and memory problems
  • Irritability and depression

If you have any of these symptoms, then your doctor may order an x-ray, CT scan or an MRI to check for signs of whiplash. Treatment will depend on how severe the damage is to the spine and tissues. At Platinum Healthcare, we use conservative treatments such as hot/cold therapy, physical therapy, exercise, and cervical therapy collar and soft tissue release techniques to treat whiplash. We can also explore other options for more severe whiplash injuries.

Don’t wait to have neck injuries examined by a professional. Call (941) 927-1123 to schedule a free screening at Platinum Healthcare in Sarasota.
