Car accidents are one of the most frustrating experiences we can have in modern life. They also usually mean you have suffered some form of harm to your body, the most common being whiplash injury. Whiplash is an injury that happens when your neck is suddenly “whipped” back and forth. This sudden movement strains the muscles in the neck and can cause joint restrictions in the spine. Many rear-end car crashes can cause a person to sustain whiplash. Even from vehicles moving at speeds as low as five to 10 mph.
When you find yourself in this situation, it is always wise to seek medical attention as soon as possible. You might feel fine after the accident, however, your neck may begin to hurt a few hours or even days after the accident if you have whiplash. Just because the symptoms have appeared later, it doesn’t mean that the injury is any less serious. No matter when the whiplash pain begins, don’t choose to ignore it.
The most common symptoms of whiplash include:
- neck pain
- neck stiffness and difficulty moving your head
- pain and muscle spasms in the shoulders and arms
