One of the major keys to a successful recovery after a motor vehicle collision is therapeutic exercise. Whiplash trauma tears the connective tissues that hold a joint together. Following whiplash trauma, these tissues need to be properly strengthened; otherwise it can result in permanent joint instability.
It is vital that a whiplash patient get timely and progressive therapeutic exercise directed at the site of trauma. Failure to do this is a major reason for a poor recovery and long-term disabilities/symptoms. Joint stability is so important that the American Medical Association's Guide to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment, 5th Edition, allows 25-28% Whole Person Impairment for permanent problems of this nature.
The use of specialized, in-office machines is the best way to accomplish this rehab. This office offers such in-office rehab and endeavors to meet reasonable goals of strengthening for every whiplash patient. This is one of the prime reasons we have been so successful in our treatment of personal injuries over the last 28 years. With thousands of whiplash patients treated at this office, we feel confident that we have the experience and the equipment to do it right.
