Treat Whiplash at Gramercy Pain Center

Whiplash is a neck injury caused by abrupt and forceful movements of the neck, which may injure the following: cervical spine, ligaments, neck muscles, disks between the bones, and other tissues found in the neck. While most whiplash patients get better after a few weeks with the right pain medication and physical therapy, some patients develop complications and chronic neck pain.

Whiplash involves neck pain due to injury, but it also has other symptoms:

  • dizziness

  • headache, usually at the base of your skull
  • limited range of motion of the neck
  • neck pain
  • numbness or tingling in the arms
  • pain or soreness in the shoulder, upper arms, or back

FAQs About Whiplash

Q: Is whiplash the same as neck sprain?

A: Whiplash is also called neck sprain or neck strain. But neck sprain or strain is also used to refer to other neck injuries. Whiplash is specifically the neck injury caused by forceful and sudden back and forth movement of the head.

Q: Is there an alternative medicine for treating whiplash injuries?

A: Other therapies have tried to reduce whiplash pain, but clinical studies about them still need to be developed. These include:

Q: Will I need a foam collar for my whiplash injury?
