Whiplash

What Are The Symptoms Of Whiplash?

The symptoms of whiplash often show about 24 hours after the injury. Sometimes, the symptoms may fail to show for days or even weeks. However, the common symptoms of whiplash include the following:

  • Stiffness and pain in your neck
  • Blurred vision
  • Headaches, especially those felt near the base of your skull
  • Weariness
  • Dizziness
  • Constant ringing in your ears
  • Irritability and inability to enjoy sleep
  • Chronic neck and shoulder pain

Neck strain is usually a mild condition that clears up on its own. Whiplash, on the other hand, can cause long-term pain, loss of movement, and discomfort.

Person Dealing with Compressed Nerve Neck Pain

What Are The Causes Of Whiplash?

Neck injury can develop from different activities, including the following:

  • Accidents, such as rear-end car accidents as earlier mentioned
  • Engaging in contact sports such as football, karate, or boxing
  • Physical abuse, fighting, or being punched on the head
  • Riding on horsebacks
  • Bicycle- or motorbike accidents

These are some of the activities that’ll surely cause injuries to your neck. It is best if you indulge in such activities while exercising extreme caution, but accidents are random and can’t be avoided, right? Well, tell that to the doctor.

Do You Need a Pain Doctor?

Whiplash, commonly referred to as neck strain, is an injury to your neck that’s usually caused by a sudden movement of the head with force. This kind of injury is often noted in rear-end car accidents, in which the head gets jerked back and forth with extreme force. What happens is that your neck muscles and ligaments stretch excessively beyond the range of motion and end up tearing a bit.

Even though a neck strain is considered a mild condition, it can potentially cause long-term pain, not to mention the discomfort that comes with it.
