Auto injury pain in Kennewick can be caused by any number of impact injuries. Whiplash, soft tissue injuries, and broken bones may result. Internal traumas might also occur. Whiplash is a neck injury due to forceful, rapid back-and-forth movement of the neck, like the cracking of a whip. Whiplash most often occurs during a rear-end auto accident, but the injury can also result from a sports accident, physical abuse or other trauma. Common signs and symptoms of whiplash include neck pain, stiffness, limited or loss of neck range of motion, headaches, tenderness or pain in the shoulder, upper back or arms, tingling or numbness in the arms, fatigue, and dizziness. Most people with whiplash recover within a few months after a course of pain medication, exercise and other treatments. Some people experience chronic neck pain and other ongoing complications.
Once an accurate diagnosis of your auto injury pain in Kennewick has been confirmed, the gifted therapists at Oasis Physical Therapy will develop a treatment program to address your injury and get you back on your feet again as quickly and thoroughly as possible. The goals of treatment are to control pain, restore normal range of motion in your neck and return you to normal activities. The course of treatment will vary depending on the severity of your whiplash injury. For some people, over-the-counter drugs and at-home care may be sufficient. Other people may need prescription drugs, specialized pain treatment or physical therapy. Immobilizing your neck with a foam collar for three hours a day may also be an option for you. Whatever your injury is, let us help you recover, rehabilitate, and return to your normal activities.
