whiplashWhat is Whiplash

One of the most common injuries after suffering an automobile accident is whiplash. It occurs when the muscles and ligaments of the neck extend beyond its range of motion, resulting in damage to the soft tissues or bones of the neck. The vertebral column and nerves may also be affected. Some may perceive this as a minor injury, but you should not let it go unevaluated or untreated.

Symptoms of Whiplash

The most common symptoms of whiplash include neck pain and stiffness, headaches, and dizziness. These symptoms typically occur immediately after an accident, but may also appear days later. Other symptoms include:

  • Burning or tingling sensations in the neck
  • Shoulder or back pain
  • Loss of memory
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Nervousness or irritability
  • Sleep disturbances and fatigue
  • Depression
