Long-term damage to the spine and head is especially common in auto accidents. Our physicians here at South Jersey Health & Wellness Center have recognized that most victims of automobile injuries do not fully recover under just traditional care; they may continue to have problems for years after the accident because their structure is often ignored.
This is especially the case of those who have whiplash and concussion injuries as well as other accident victims. New medical terms acknowledging the incomplete healing of accident victims have recently arisen: Post-Concussion Syndrome (PCS), Whiplash Syndrome (WS), Mild Traumatic Brain Injuries (MTBI) and Mild Head Injury (MHI).
Residual problems may linger for months, years, or decades after an accident. They may be musculoskeletal (the muscles and bones are affected). Commonly called “pinched’ nerves, there may be pains or muscle spasms in the neck, shoulders, arms, wrists, hands, legs, back, face or head upon movement or when standing and sitting for long periods. The pain may radiate to other parts of the body.
