What is Whiplash?

Whiplash is a generalized term for a soft tissue injury to your neck following a sudden trauma to your neck. Simply put, whiplash is neck strain. While the most common whiplash injury is the result of a car accident, any impact or blow that causes your head to jerk forward or backward can cause neck strain. The sudden force stretches and tears the muscles and tendons in your neck and can be quite painful. The symptoms of whiplash can be felt immediately after a motor vehicle accident, or even 2 to 3 days after the accident.

What are the Symptoms of Whiplash?

It can range from mild to severe. Injuries tend to be more serious when the impact is quite severe, or the headrest is too low. Symptoms include:

  • Neck pain
  • Shoulder, upper back, and arm pain
  • Headaches
  • Blurred vision
  • Pain when turning the head
  • Inability to move or turn the head fully
  • Dizziness
  • Tiredness
  • Numbness or tingling in the arms, hands, and fingers
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Difficulty sleeping

There is a wide range of symptoms, and not all of them can be immediately traceable to whiplash. Even if you have been cleared by a doctor, your pain could still be traced to whiplash and you may need treatment to correct the problem. The appropriate treatment is unique to each injury and depends on the primary dysfunction detected during the chiropractic exam. Chiropracital will provide a complete assessment and treatment plan tailored to you and your specific accident.
