Whiplash associated injury…what should you expect in your recovery

by berkeleypt, May 28, 2015

Have you ever been in a car accident? Have you had a whiplash injury? What should you expect as you recover?

Recent research suggests that physical therapists or other health care providers who specialize in whiplash associated disorders may be able to use your age and the results of 2 simple questionnaires as part of a comprehensive examination to suggest the proper approach to treatment for your particular circumstances. Make sure you should communicate your medical history to your physical therapist or health care provider so that they can make the best decisions about your treatment. For example, a prior whiplash injury or previous neck pain may affect your outcomes. For more information on the treatment of neck pain and whiplash, contact your physical therapist specializing in musculoskeletal disorders.
