Whiplash and Motor Vehicle Accidents Treatment in Nashville, TN

Steve Kravitz Physical Therapy

Absolutely phenomenal. Kind, intuitive, grounded, wonderfully talented and extremely knowledgeable. He is the rare gem; the practitioner who when you visit you can completely trust and who inspires confidence. He has the ability to read your physical and energetic symptoms but also has a giant toolbox of different modalities which he seamlessly uses. He gave suggestions, exercises and information that would mean I am not reliant on him or going for repeated follow-ups. I have a severely torn labrum and a lot of referred pain. When I left Steve, and still three days later, the pain had lessened by 50%. When I left, I felt a tranquility and relief from pain that stayed with me for days. If you have to wait, it’s worth it. He’s a maestro.

Whiplash and Motor Vehicle Accidents

●      Symptoms -

Whiplash occurs when the neck and head are suddenly forced backward and then forward, putting your cervical spine through quick motions and extreme stresses.  The most common symptom to accompany whiplash is neck pain, which can range anywhere from mild to pins-and-needles tingling to unbearable. Other symptoms are neck stiffness or reduced range of motion, neck instability, shoulder and/or upper back pain, or headache. Tingling, weakness, or numbness that radiates into the shoulder and/or down the arm can also occur.
