Are you suffering from whiplash injury?

Whiplash injury occurs when the soft tissue in the spine is stretched after a sudden jerky, movement. Whiplash is a personal injury most commonly sustained as the result of a car accident. Particularly, the impact of a rear-end collision can cause the neck to jolt forward and strain.

Whiplash symptoms

  • Headaches
  • Stiffness and pain in the neck and back of the head
  • Numbness or pain in the arm or hand
  • Lower back pain
  • Dizziness
  • Reduced concentration
  • Sleep disturbances

Whiplash injury usually becomes apparent within the first few days following an accident on the road. The symptoms can last just days or weeks depending on the severity of the strain. Most people that suffer whiplash injury have their symptoms diminish within a few months, however severe conditions will require further investigation and in extreme cases surgery may be needed.
