Class iv summus laser for whiplash


Whiplash is a common condition mostly associated after a rear end car collision.  When rear ended, your head is quickly extended backwards before your head hits the head rest forcing your head forward then repeats. The weight of the head moving so quickly stresses the muscles in the neck causing micro tears in the muscles and ligaments causing pain, swelling and muscle spasms. You have several layers of muscles in the neck but the erector spinae muscles, the trapezius muscles, and the sternocleidomastoid muscles are commonly injured. These injuries can last weeks and make it difficult to sleep or perform everyday activities. It is important to be evaluated as soon as possible after this injury. Our Summus class IV laser has specific settings to treat this injury by reducing pain, inflammation, and increasing blood flow to facilitate healing.
