When a whiplash injury causes damage to the bones, muscles, ligaments, and tendons, the spine may become compromised. If this happens, you could be dealing with a significant injury that requires more than just home care. If you have been in an accident, our Sioux Falls personal injury attorneys encourage you to seek immediate medical attention. Unfortunately, with injuries such as whiplash, the pain can worsen over time. If it is a serious and debilitating injury, immediate medical intervention may be required to prevent further damage to your spine. 

If your whiplash injury is severe, your doctor may require more than just rest and ice. The following may be included for full recovery:

  • Prescription medications to help with the pain and inflammation
  • Muscle relaxers
  • Cervical collar
  • Chiropractic treatments
  • Acupuncture
  • Massage
  • Electrical nerve stimulation
  • Physical therapy to increase strength and range of motion once pain has subsided

Always be sure to follow your doctor’s orders. For more information, read our library article, “Are You Suffering From Whiplash in South Dakota? Learn the Symptoms.
