Whiplash is a common injury following rear-end automobile collisions and other types of traumas where there’s a sudden jerk or change in direction. It refers to neck injuries caused by a rapid back-and-forth motion of the neck, resembling the cracking of a whip.
Symptoms of Whiplash
Whiplash injuries may not appear immediately after the accident. Symptoms can develop hours, days, or even weeks later. They include:
Neck pain and stiffness
Decreased range of motion in the neck
Headaches, most often starting at the base of the skull.
Tenderness or pain in the shoulder, upper back, or arms
Tingling or numbness in the arms
In some cases, people may experience:
Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
To diagnose whiplash, at Champion Comprehensive Health Centers we will:
Take a detailed medical history.
Conduct a physical examination to determine the range of motion in the neck, the degree of motion that causes pain or discomfort, and check for tenderness over the neck.
Order imaging tests such as X-rays, CT scans, or MRIs in certain cases to rule out other injuries.
Come up with a custom treatment plan needed to fix your issue.
