What Is Whiplash?

Whiplash is neck injury that usually results from car accidents during rear end motor vehicle collisions. The accident moves your head and neck suddenly backwards and then forwards. These sudden and intense movements put both the neck muscles and ligaments far beyond on their normal limits causing injury. Whiplash can range from mild to severe; some people recover within weeks whereas other people can take years to recover.

Signs and Symptoms of Whiplash:

  • Neck pain and/or stiffness
  • Headache
  • Back pain
  • Dizziness
  • Blurred vision
  • Fatigue
  • Difficult concentrating
  • Ringing in your ears
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Pain spreads into the shoulders or arms
  • Experiencing numbness and tingling or weakness in your arms.

You should start Physiotherapy treatments ASAP!
