How to treat a wiplash injury of the neck?
Q: What is the best way to treat a whiplash injury of the neck sustained in a car accident? I have tried everything and now I am out of options. Is pain in the right shoulder a symptom?
A:1. The pain in the shoulder can be a symptom. Yes. 2. Whiplash injury can be of any severity depending on the trauma sustained by the cord and the bony/soft tissues of the neck. You may need to go through the entire history/exam/investigations and a detailed assessment by a neurologist/neurosurgeon for the complete answer.
