Whiplash Syndrome

The neck is vulnerable to injuries, as it is a narrow column of muscles, spine and tissue that supports the heavier head. If the head snaps quickly backward and then forward, the strain on the musculoskeletal system in the neck can occur. This is known as whiplash. Whiplash is a common injury in accidents, like car crashes and falls, causing damage to the neck that results in pain. Our doctors at Medici Medical Arts help diagnose and treat whiplash syndrome at our clinics in Buckhead and Kennesaw, offering effective treatments to give you relief.

Symptoms of Whiplash

When whiplash occurs, the muscles and ligaments in the neck are stretched, and the cervical spine is put under extreme stress. The severe jerking motion can cause damage to the vertebrae, discs, soft tissue and nerves. It is not uncommon for a person to sustain whiplash, yet not have any symptoms immediately. The pain and other symptoms can begin as much as days after the injury, depending on the damage. Common symptoms of whiplash include:

  • Stiffness and pain in the neck and shoulders
  • Neck instability
  • Limited neck motion
  • Headaches
  • Radiating pain, tingling and numbness into the shoulder and arm

Whiplash causes serious injuries and inflammation in the neck that can result in acute and chronic pain conditions. Undergoing treatment as soon as possible helps improve the healing process and lower the risk of chronic pain.

Treatments for whiplash depend on the injuries and symptoms of the patient. At Medici Medical Arts, we design personalized, multidisciplinary treatment plans to manage pain and encourage quicker healing. Patients with whiplash syndrome may require physical therapy, myofascial release, injection therapy and other treatments to help with their recovery.

If you have suffered a whiplash injury, contact us at Medici Medical Arts today. We accept many types of insurance, including injuries covered by vehicle or homeowner’s insurance. Call us to schedule your appointment for an injury evaluation.

He really cares. I would highly recommend this office to anyone! They really care and they are genuine. My PCP recommended Dr. Sonny and I'm ever so grateful for that

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Thoroughly appreciated the medical services provided by Dr. Dosanjh. Dr. Dosanjh is very confident in his patient care and concern. I would definitely refer others and have been telling others about my experience at Medici Medical Arts both Kennesaw and Buckhead. I wish he took my insurance, as I have injuries not related to my work incident for which I was seeing Dr. Dosanjh. Thank you so very much, Dr. Dosanjh! The staff is warm, welcoming and cheerful and most helpful.

Meredith

Dr. Dosanjh is a very smart, caring doctor who is highly skilled in his field. He spends whatever time is necessary to "hear" his patients and to explain the proper and best results course of action. I have a very complicated head and neck injury, so it was essential to me to have someone who truly listened with undivided attention, and thought outside the box when necessary. His staff is exemplary. They could not be more helpful and thoughtful. Lucy in particular is a gift of sunshine.

Jill C.

Dr. Sonny is the best! He has done more for me in 2 months than my previous doctor did in 14 years! If you truly want to get out of pain, then contact Dr. Sonny immediately! I just cannot reiterate how incredible a doctor he is! For that matter, his entire staff is warm and inviting! And to top it off, as a patient you get free use of their amazing gym. Highly, highly, highly recommend Dr. Sonny!

After a major car accident I saw Dr. Sonny for my neck & back pain. He was very knowledgeable about treatment options & really listened to all my concerns. Trigger point injections are helping me currently & I will continue to come back to Dr. Sonny.

Christina S.

I am thrilled with the care I have received from Dr. Dosanjh. He has a fabulous staff that is caring and attentive. I had serious back pain that was hindering my quality of life. Now I am on my way to being discharged. I am very thankful for all they did for me. I will not miss the pain I was in but there is no doubt that l will miss them.
