Treating Whiplash in Orange City and Deltona
Here at Apple Neuro & Spine in Orange City and Deltona, we offer treatment for whiplash, which is a severe sprain and strain of the neck. This injury typically occurs during car accidents, but it can happen any time the head and neck are forcefully stretched beyond their normal range of motion.
Symptoms of a Severe Neck Sprain and Strain
Directly after your car accident, you may not experience any symptoms. However, it is important to note that most whiplash symptoms do not begin until a day or two after the accident. This is when you will notice a decrease in the range of motion of your neck, headaches and blurry vision. You may even notice pain in your upper back, shoulders and arms.
