Whiplash and Soft Tissue Injury, Modesto

Don’t take whiplash lightly after a car accident. Although soft tissue injuries may not seem serious, they often cause long-lasting serious physical damage that goes beyond the pain. A serious whiplash injury can result in a lifetime of reduced mobility and can be an indicator of a spinal cord injury and possibly a brain injury due to sudden acceleration or deceleration. If you were struck from behind in an auto accident, get a complete physical examination by a medical professional.

At Arata, Swingle, Van Egmond & Heitlinger, we take whiplash and soft tissue injuries seriously. We work with medical experts and physical therapists to determine the full extent of the injury and need for on-going treatment over a lifetime.
