Experiencing Pain from a Whiplash Injury?

Our Pain Management Solutions in Sandy Springs & Norcoss

If you are in pain after sustaining a whiplash injury, you need to seek the expert treatment and compassionate care at Total Health Care. We have extensive experience in helping whiplash victims recover from this injury, which usually results from car accidents, falls, and playing contact sports. A whiplash injury occurs when a quick jerking motion forces the neck beyond its normal range of motion, causing injury to vertebrae, tissue, and muscles. The symptoms of a whiplash injury can sometimes be felt immediately or several days after an accident.

Some of the symptoms of whiplash include:

  • Neck pain and stiffness
  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Shoulder and back pain
  • Burning and prickling sensations
  • Difficulty swallowing or chewing

Depending on the severity of your whiplash injury, treatment may include the use of a cervical collar, which immobilizes the neck while it heals. Other effective forms of treatment include anti-inflammatory medication, physical therapy, and nerve blocks. Our team of orthopedic pain experts can help determine what kind of treatment would be best for you.

The Connection Between Whiplash Injuries & Cervicogenic Headaches

Did you know that nearly 80% of people who sustain whiplash injuries develop a chronic cervicogenic headache? Commonly referred to as whiplash headaches, these chronic headaches are caused due to the injury caused to cervical joints and inflammation of nerves in the brain stem and spinal cord. Whiplash headaches are often indistinguishable from normal headaches because the symptoms include pain in the head, neck, and jaw. If you suspect you are suffering from whiplash headaches, we can also help you find the most adequate form of treatment suitable to your needs.

We may recommend the following kinds of treatment for whiplash headaches:

  • Physical therapy
  • Anti-inflammatory medication
  • Steroid / anesthetic injections (short-term pain relief)
  • Radiofrequency pain blocks (long-term pain relief)
