What is Whiplash—and How Does it Occur?
Whiplash is a type of neck strain that occurs when the neck is quickly flung in a direction. Any type of rapid acceleration or deceleration of the body can cause this to happen. Understandably, we see it a lot following car accidents, slip & falls, sports collisions, or other types of acute trauma.
Due to the rapid whip-like movement of the neck, joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons, discs, nerves, fascia, and other connective tissues in and around the cervical spine can become strained, inflamed, and irritated.
Signs and Symptoms of Whiplash
Signs and symptoms of whiplash may show up immediately after the traumatic event or may develop more slowly in the days, weeks, and months after.
The major symptoms to look out for include:
- Neck pain and neck stiffness
- Shoulder and arm stiffness, pain, numbness, and tingling
- Jaw pain
- Ringing in the ears
- Difficulty sleeping or concentrating
You'll notice that whiplash often involves more than just the neck. Seeking treatment as soon as possible after any type of acute trauma can minimize these uncomfortable signs of dysfunction and kick start the healing process so you'll be less likely to deal with chronic problems, including joint misalignments and disc damage.
