The result of more cars on the road than ever before means the number of accidents has increased. The number of neck injuries has grown as well. The neck pain associated with whiplash can range from minor to significant. While whiplash often happens due to car accidents, it can also occur because of a fall or sports-related injury.
Whiplash creates a hyperextension of the cervical spine. It’s more common when a driver has a rear-end collision than in other types of crashes. This type of neck injury can damage both your upper and lower cervical spine. The seriousness of your symptoms depends on the velocity of the impact. The size of the car that hit you also plays a factor in your injury. Age-related disc degeneration in your neck can make this trauma to the spine even more severe.
Anytime you have an automobile accident, it creates stress. The capable team with the Spine & Rehab Group provides excellent treatment after a definitive diagnosis. Dr. Amr Hosny and his team of spine experts help reduce the stress in your neck by offering exceptional whiplash injury treatment.
Interestingly, you don’t have to get rear-ended at a high rate of speed to get whiplash. It can occur even in minor fender-benders. Other factors that play a role in a whiplash injury may include:
Even if the accident seems inconsequential, get a checkup from your spine doctor as soon as possible. Seek whiplash treatment from a specialized neck injury doctor if you hear a crunching sound coming from your spine or if you’re experiencing pain. The longer you suffer, the likelihood of feeling discomfort for prolonged periods increases. Untreated, whiplash neck injuries can lead to serious consequences, including:
Whiplash injury treatment takes into account many variables. Your neck injury doctor knows whiplash has both a physical and psychological impact. To meet your individual needs, your specialist records a thorough assessment and self-history. Your spine doctor confirms a diagnosis and the level of the injury with imaging tests. Additionally, you may need support for the psychological trauma you experienced to prevent consequences such as:
Sometimes, the strain placed on your neck due to whiplash can cause a concussion. A concussion is dangerous and needs immediate medical attention. Signs you may have a concussion include:
I came to the spine and rehab group for my back and leg pain. I was able to get an appointment the same day I called. The staff was very friendly and courteous. The doctors were very knowledgeable and took time to explain what was causing my pain and answer all my questions. I felt comfortable having my procedure done in their state of the art surgery center, where the staff made you feel at ease. They are very easy to reach and available to answer all your questions.Narendra G. ★★★★★

I went to Dr. Hosny with lower back pain. I spend many hours sitting in a truck for my job. After an hour or so I would get pain in my back. Since I am a truck driver, pain killers were not an option for me. After a few sessions with Dr. Hosny, I am pain free. The staff at New Jersey Pain Care Center and are wonderful and caring people. I would recommend anyone go to Dr. Hosny if they want real results.Jeff ★★★★★
I had gone to Dr. Hosny with severe back pain after spinal surgery. It was debilitating pain that stopped me from being able to function normally. Dr. Hosny suggested that I have a Spinal Cord Stimulator implanted in my back. It is the best thing I EVER did. I am so excited to be able to return to my normal life with no medication. My experience at the pain center was wonderful. The nurses were very understanding and kind.Glen ★★★★★
I have had back surgeries that provided me no relief from my pain. After a few treatments with Dr. Hosny, I have almost no discomfort. I have no need for my pain medication anymore, and have been able to go back to working out and enjoying activities with my family. I was pleasantly surprised at the treatment I received at New Jersey Pain Care Center. The staff is very nice, and treats you with respect. The facility is clean, bright and everything is brand new.Jen ★★★★★
I had been having pain in my neck for many years. I had been to other doctors and they all recommended that I have surgery. I was hesitant to get surgery, so I wanted one more opinion. I had a friend tell me about Dr. Hosny and New Jersey Pain Care Center. From the moment I met Dr. Hosny I knew he wasn’t your average doctor. He took the time to listen to my concerns about surgery, and he agreed. After my cervical radiofrequency, I have full range of motion back in my neck, and best of all, no pain.Sharon
