Whiplash

If you believe you have a whiplash injury, it is important to get the right diagnosis to ensure the proper treatment. For any injury to your neck, turn to the orthopedic experts at Jefferson.

Rated among the best hospitals in the nation for Orthopedics and Rehabilitation Medicine by U.S.News & World Report, Jefferson's multidisciplinary team of orthopedists, neurosurgeons, rheumatologists, physiatrists (rehabilitation physicians), therapists and radiologists can diagnose and treat your neck pain.

If your condition requires surgical treatment, our orthopedic surgeons are considered pioneers in the development of minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS), which helps to reduce the risk of infection, decrease pain, reduce blood loss and facilitate faster recovery.

Outpatient consultation and rehabilitation therapy services are available to patients of all age ranges, including neonate, pediatric, adult and geriatric. The rehabilitation therapists practice an interdisciplinary team approach, working with the referring physicians, physiatrists, nurse practitioners and case managers to ensure comprehensive quality services are delivered.

For chronic pain management, our pain management-trained anesthesiologists, psychologists and nurses offer the latest advances in both technological and psychological treatments. Our specialists provide a comprehensive pain-focused evaluation of patients with chronic pain and offer leading-edge treatments such as nerve root block therapy, long-term intraspinal infusions and radiofrequency neurotomy.

As a complement to more traditional therapies, an integrative approach can be an additional solution for unresolved pain complaints and to improve strength and functional mobility. Rated a Top Hospital for Alternative Medicine by Philadelphia magazine, the Marcus Institute of Integrative Health team offers many unique therapies such as homeopathic bee venom injections, as well as a variety of manual medicine modalities.
