  • Whiplash

Whiplash injuries are common in car accidents.  Whiplash refers to the sudden back and forth motion of the neck and head caused by rapid deceleration of a car accident.

 

Whiplash can cause injury to the soft tissues (muscles, tendons, and ligaments) of the neck, and injuries to the joints between the neck vertebrae, the disks in the neck, and the roots of the nerves that branch out of the spinal cord.

 

Whiplash symptoms include neck or upper back pain, stiffness, shoulder pain or stiffness, headache, dizziness, or a burning sensation in the neck, shoulders, or arms.

 

The rapid deceleration that causes whiplash can also cause a concussion or traumatic brain injury.  Concussions suffered in a car accident can cause headaches, memory loss, difficulty in concentration, sleep disturbances, fatigue, or depression.

 

Symptoms of whiplash can develop immediately after the accident, or can arise hours or even days after the accident.  It is important to be on the look-out for these symptoms after an accident and seek immediate medical attention if you begin to experiencing any of them.
