What is Whiplash?
You may have experienced this condition but didn't know there is a name for it. Whiplash is a soft tissue neck injury that occurs when your head is quickly forced forward and then back again. It can cause the muscles and ligaments in your neck to stretch beyond their normal range of motion, leading to pain and stiffness. Whiplash is most often caused by car accidents, but can also occur during contact sports or other activities that cause your head to snap back and forth suddenly.
Symptoms of Whiplash
The most common symptom of whiplash is neck pain. You may also experience headaches, stiffness, and tenderness in your neck and shoulders. In some cases, you may have tingling or numbness in your arms and hands. These symptoms can appear immediately after the injury or may take a few days to develop. If you experience any of these symptoms after an accident or another injury, it's important to see a chiropractor immediately. The longer you wait to seek treatment, the greater the risk of developing chronic pain.
