Published July 12, 2015

Information like this is important to understand. This can dramatically affect your patients ADLs and treatment, both in terms of what to expect and for how long. Having a weaker neck after a crash may mean your patient is more susceptible to flare ups and why some activities are harder for them since the crash. Notice this is not a "soft tissue" diagnosis, but a ligament injury that may not heal to 100%. Having this in your notes or expert narratives is powerful.
