Whiplash from Car Accident

If you have ever been in a car crash and experienced pain in your neck, you have most likely had whiplash. Whiplash, also called neck sprain/strain, is an injury to the structures of the neck. This type of injury is often the result of rear-end car crashes. Whiplash can include injury to the intervertebral joints, discs, ligaments, cervical muscles and nerve roots. The most common structure injured in whiplash is the cervical facet joint.

Injection Therapy for Whiplash

If you have whiplash, platelet rich plasma therapy may help. It uses parts of your own blood to help your body heal itself. Injection can help your neck feel better and work better.

Post-Whiplash Headache

This is a chronic headache. It can develop after a whiplash injury (a violent back-and-forth jerking of the neck).

If you have whiplash you might feel:

  • Neck pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Upper back pain
  • Tightness or spasms of the neck or upper back muscles
  • Burning or tingling

Call us for a consultation with our board certified physicians.


This review is on behalf of Ping Meng. According to her, she says the doctors are very nice and she appreciates the kindness towards the patients. The pain injection does work. For her it was 80-90% better after the injection. Highly recommended!!
