Fitness Matters in Cases of Whiplash Injury

One of the biggest problems in whiplash injury is that this type of trauma causes soft tissue injury. The soft tissues are the muscles, ligaments, tendons, etc that support the spine and body joints. These car accident induced soft tissue injuries often heal slowly and inefficiently. Multiple studies have demonstrated that roughly over half of whiplash-injured patients had not reached functional recovery at 3 months, and that approximately one third or more whiplash-injured patients had not reached functional recovery at 6 months. Wow, what can we do to help this?

You canít necessarily pick whether you are in a car accident, but you can decide whether you exercise regularly. It turns out that people that have higher levels of pre-injury fitness often have a greater ability to achieve early recovery from their whiplash injuries. For car accident injury victims, low pre-injury fitness levels are highly predictive of poor injury recovery from their whiplash injuries.

Perhaps if you are a Sacramento or Rancho Cordova area road warrior it is a good idea to keep your aerobic fitness levels up in case of unexpected auto accident injury! Should a car accident occur, contact the Whiplash Recovery Center at Capitol Chiropractic right away at (916) 368-1600.
