Whiplash is an injury to the soft tissues and delicate bones of the neck. It occurs when a sudden braking or other jerking movement causes the head to whip forward and backward and/or from side to side. When this happens, the small supporting muscle must tense and try to make up for the larger muscles’ inability to control the motion of the head and neck.
The damage that is caused to the structure of the neck can cause lack of mobility, extreme pain, numbness/tingling in one’s arms/hands, and if left untreated may lead to permanent issues that plague you for life. The effects of whiplash are difficult to treat if allowed to progress without treatment.
It can take up to 48 hours for symptoms of whiplash to appear. The most common symptoms include:
