Assessment and Treatment of Whiplash Injuries in Kitchener-Waterloo
Dr. Nyman provides treatment for Whiplash and other injuries resulting from Automobile Accidents in Kitchener - Waterloo, Ontario.
What is Whiplash?
People injured in car accidents often experience a strain/sprain of the neck muscles and surrounding soft tissue. This is commonly known as whiplash.
Whiplash is now referred to as a Whiplash-associated Disorder (WAD). WAD often occurs when a vehicle is hit from the rear or the side, causing a sharp and sudden movement of the head and neck. Whiplash may result in tender muscles (Grade I) or limited neck movement (Grade II). There are also more severe types of WAD where neurological signs or fractures are present.
If you have suffered a whiplash injury, knowing more about the condition can help you recover faster. We recommend that you have your injuries assessed and documented as soon as possible after your accident.
