Sleeping 8 hours a night is 1/3 of your life. It is when your body heals and is therefore critical after an accident. Intuitively some will roll up a towel and place it under their neck while sleeping on their backs. One of the items our patients receive is a specialized whiplash pillow in their CAR CRASH KIT.
Use ice not heat for the first 3 days. Heat increases inflammation and pain. Proper icing includes 4 levels of sensation (CBAN) namely Cold, Burn, Ache, Numb. It takes about 20 minutes. A mold-able, reusable ice pack is another item in our patient's receive in their CAR CRASH KIT.
Anything that helps relieve the pain is an added bonus. Although there are many products to choose from we use only the best! Our patients receive a specially formulated analgesic spray as part of their CAR CRASH KIT.
