Whiplash disorders are a source of chronic pain and suffering for millions of people each year. What’s causing your pain and what can be done about it?
Symptoms of a Whiplash Injury
Although the damage caused by a car accident happens in a split second, different factors such as shock and adrenaline may mask the pain until later. However, typically, signs of whiplash are felt within 24 hours of the injury, and can include:
1. Neck pain and stiffness
2. Blurred vision
3. Memory loss
4. Ringing in the ears
5. Difficulty concentrating
Contact your physician immediately if you also notice the following symptoms:
1. Pain spreading to your shoulders or arms
2. It becomes painful to move your head
3. Numbness, tingling, or weakness in your arms
Whiplash can severely affect your day to day life if you are living with pain, fatigue, dizziness or any of the other symptoms listed above. For those who are suffering, the damage can affect all different areas of your life, including work, school, and personal relationships.
