Whiplash is an injury that occurs when the head is quickly whipped or snapped back and forth. This can happen in a variety of ways but one of the leading causes comes from auto accidents. The symptoms of a whiplash injury can manifest in a variety of ways including:
- Stiff or painful neck or back
- Fatigue, cognitive changes or dizziness
- Upper back, shoulder or arm pain
- Numbness and tingling
Symptoms like this can take days or even months to manifest and this makes it easy to believe that you do not need to seek out any care. These symptoms can become chronic or progressive so a consultation with a healthcare provider is important to avoid these larger problems.
