Whiplash Is More Than A Pain in the Neck

Whiplash is more than just a pain in the neck.

 

Also called neck sprain or neck strain, whiplash is characterized by a collection of symptoms that occur following damage to the neck. This is due to the sudden back and forth motion of a trauma like a car accident.

 

Just about two-thirds of people involved in motor vehicle accidents will develop symptoms of whiplash. 

 

However, whiplash symptoms usually take a few hours or days after the injury to show up.

 

Although very prevalent in car accidents, whiplash can also occur from falls, sports injuries, work injuries, and other traumas to the neck.

 

 

If you have been involved in an accident, especially a car accident, you should seek medical attention from a local whiplash injury chiropractor to ensure you don't have whiplash.

 

Even if you feel fine immediately after the accident, your whiplash symptoms could be lying dormant. 

 

The sooner you are checked out, the better chance you have of a full recovery.

 

In the article below, we will discuss whiplash and why it is more than just a pain in the neck.
