If you accidentally cut yourself, the medical team at Bronx Urgent Care offers prompt and compassionate care to clean your wound and apply stitches to aid in the healing process. From accidents in the kitchen to slip-and-fall and car accidents, if you have a wound that won’t stop bleeding, come in immediately.

What is whiplash?

Whiplash is a common injury to the neck that occurs during a car accident. A rear collision will jerk your head forward and backward quickly, resulting in injury to the muscles and tendons of the neck that result in serious pain and mobility issues. If you experience a car accident, even if you aren’t in pain, come in for an assessment, just to be sure.

Many car accident-related injuries don’t show symptoms for hours or in some cases days because of the adrenaline that surges through your body after the collision. It is important to get a diagnosis and begin treatment as early as possible to prevent your injury from turning into something more serious. In many cases, the best treatment for whiplash is immobilization to allow your muscles to heal.
