Whiplash

Cervical Acceleration/Deceleration Injuries (AKA: Whiplash, Cervical Hyperextension Injury)



Whiplash is caused by an abnormal motion or force applied to your neck that causes movement beyond the neck's normal ranges of motion. Injury occurs to the soft tissues of your neck (specifically ligaments, tendons, and muscles). This type of injury can occur not only from motor vehicle crashes, but sporting activities, accidental falls, and assault.

More specifically, the following terms are also forms of cervical hyperextension injury: sprain strain of the cervical spine, radiculopathy, discitis.

Usually, the first area of care would come from an emergency department. Some prescription drugs may be supplied or prescribed, and follow-up care would be offered by one of their ‘extension’ doctors, or they may direct you to your own. The following is a short list of common complaints following this type of spinal injury: Neck pain and stiffness, headache, fatigue, radiation of pain into the shoulder or arm, back pain, dizziness, difficulty resting, blurred vision. It is important to get the opinion of a specialist, who has extensive knowledge on the entire rehabilitation process. Usually, symptoms diminish after a course of physical therapy.

The staff at Advanced Physical Medicine recognizes these types of injuries and can prescribe a proper treatment plan to return you to your regular activities of daily living, pain-free!

The Ideal Protein Diet has worked for me. Over a four month period starting in May, 2014, I lost 40 plus pounds on this diet. I have been able to maintain this weight loss since then.

I was feeling very sluggish, bloated and not full of life. I went online to Advanced Physical Medicine to make an appointment for a colon hydrotherapy. Well lets just say after doing 3 sessions, I FEEL AWESOME! Elida is the best colonic therapist that you can ever have. Not only is the procedure comfortable, but afterwards you will have so much energy. Elida also recommended the Total Tea Gentle Detox Tea, and OMG! Also the best. I have type 2 Diabetes, and I have been feeling so much better with this tea. It's a great taste, no sugar needed! This was the best decision that I have done in a long time. The staff here is also pretty awesome! Thank you so much Advanced Physical Medicine and Elida!

The Ideal Protein Diet has worked for me. Over a four month period starting in May, 2014, I lost 40 plus pounds on this diet. I have been able to maintain this weight loss since then. On the Ideal Protein diet I can honestly say that I have never been hungry, and it has helped me change over to healthy eating habits. I am a type-two diabetic and was on one-half dozen different medications for diabetes. With the weight loss my blood sugars are now normal and I am off all diabetic meds! The Ideal Protein diet has changed my life!
