Whiplash

Dallas Whiplash Injury Lawyers

When symptoms of whiplash show up, it is crucial that you seek medical attention from someone who understands spine and neck injuries. Even though they are quite valuable tools, x-rays rarely show abnormalities that are related to muscle strains or problems with ligaments. Other tools, like Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), infrared scans, EMGs, CT scans and mylelograms might be required to find out the conditions that may be causing your pain and discomfort. Sometimes symptoms of whiplash and other injuries don't show up on test results, but this doesn't mean that a medical provider with the right experience can't help you find the cause of your symptoms.

Proving Whiplash Even If It's Not On An X Ray

The exact mechanism that causes whiplash is unknown. It is believed that whiplash is the result of stretching of the spine and that damage is done to the anterior longitudinal ligament. This ligament either stretches or tears as the head snaps forward and then abruptly back, causing the injury. Whiplash is most often found to be caused by motions similar to a rear-end collision. Sufferers have pain and aching in the neck and back, referred pain to the shoulders, and sensory disruptions in the arms and legs. These symptoms can show up immediately after the injury, but are not often felt until days after. Whiplash is usually found in the spinal cord and the most common area it occurs is the neck and mid back.
