When people think of whiplash most of the time, they immediately think of a “car accident.” However, did you know that car accidents aren’t the only causes of whiplash? In fact, whiplash can even be caused by a fall or by many types of repetitive movements. In some cases, the symptoms from a whiplash injury will take days or even weeks to become noticeable, but the damage that it causes can last for months or even years.
What is whiplash?
Whiplash is a condition in which the joints in the back of the neck are forced together and, as a result, this causes damage to the nerves, discs, ligaments and muscles all around them.
What are the symptoms?
The symptoms of whiplash generally include neck and arm pain, fatigue, headaches, dizziness and trouble focusing. Whiplash symptoms are oftentimes very painful and debilitating to the sufferers.
