Whiplash

Whiplash is an injury that happens when the head jerks abruptly forward and backwards, causing the neck to move outside its normal range of motion – similar to the “cracking of a whip”. Whiplash is most commonly the result of an automobile accident, but can also be from a sports injury or other impact-related trauma.

Whiplash Injuries

This injury can show up immediately, or can be delayed from 24 hours to up to a few months.

Because symptoms of whiplash injury can take weeks or months to show up, it is easy to be fooled into thinking you are not as injured as you really are. It is important to be checked as soon as an accident or injury occurs to prevent long-term damage.

Severe whiplash could mean severe nerve damage, which if not treated quickly, could be very painful and costly.
