It has happened to many Weymouth drivers: you slow down as you approach an intersection but the driver behind you fails to see your brake lights. Bam! He slams into the back of your car, which throws your head forward and then snaps it back. Hello whiplash.
Whiplash is one of the most common auto injuries in Weymouth. I am Doctor Dr Jay Provenzano and I treat dozens of whiplash patients every month at my Quincy chiropractic practice.
The most common whiplash symptoms include:
Neck pain and stiffness
Shoulder and arm pain and stiffness
Less common symptoms:
Ringing in the ears
In many cases, whiplash symptoms do not appear until several hours after the injury.
To receive insurance benefits for Weymouth auto injuries, it is necessary to obtain a diagnosis. If you have been involved in an accident, schedule an examination immediately to obtain your diagnosis for insurance purposes, minimize pain, and begin the healing process.
