Whiplash

What is whiplash?

When your head snaps back, then forward, it puts tremendous strain on your neck. This action is most common in the event of a car accident when your body is forcefully and abruptly stopped. The resulting neck pain is known as whiplash. Whiplash can also be caused by bodily contact during certain sports, accidents, or physical assault.  

While most cases of whiplash develop within 24 hours of the accident, it can take longer. The common symptoms of whiplash include:

  • Neck pain
  • Neck stiffness
  • Headaches that start at the base of the skull
  • Fatigue
  • Trouble moving the neck, or worsened pain with movement
  • Pain or tenderness in the shoulders, upper back, and arms
  • Dizziness
  • Blurred vision
  • Trouble sleeping
