What is whiplash?
Whiplash is neck strain, typically associated with car accidents, as well as any blow or impact that causes a forward or backward jerking motion. This sudden movement tears and stretches the tendons and muscles in the neck.
Why do I have whiplash?
If you live an active lifestyle or are the victim of an accident, you may be prone to severe neck strain and whiplash.
If you’ve been involved in a recent car accident chances are that you may have been injured. Pain after an accident can occur instantly or could even take weeks to reveal itself. Timely treatment following any injury is paramount to regaining your health and returning to your pre-injury status.
The lack of treatment, poor or improper treatment may mean that it will take longer to correct, be more difficult to treat, cost more money and ultimately cause you to suffer longer.
Symptoms of whiplash include:
• Decreased range of motion
• Tightness in the neck
• Hard, knotted muscles
• Headaches, usually near the base of the skull radiating towards the forehead

See a Doctor immediately or lose $8,000 in PIP benefits
Massachusetts PIP law provides you with $8,000 of coverage for medical expenses if you have been injured in an accident (even if you are at fault), however, if you don't see a doctor in a timely fashion after your accident you may lose your benefits. Our accident injury doctors will provide you with the best treatment for your injuries and we will help you file all the necessary paperwork to protect the benefits you are entitled to.
