Whiplash, though common, is incredibly painful and debilitating to those who suffer from it. It generally occurs following a rear-end car accident, as the injury is a result of the head being jolted forward and then snapping back. Sometimes, sideways movements may cause whiplash if they are severe enough. These kinds of sudden movements in the neck may result in the delicate tendons and ligaments being damaged, which is a very serious injury.
Some consequential symptoms of whiplash include, but are not limited to:
- Pain and stiffness in the neck
- Upper or lower back pain
- Severe headaches
- Tingling in the arms or legs
- Bladder or bowel issues
- Localized weakness in arms or legs
- Extreme discomfort
- Affection vision
Though whiplash typically lasts for a few days to a few weeks, severe cases may last up to several months, especially if left untreated. In rare and extreme cases, whiplash can be a lifetime affliction. As you can imagine, treatment can become extremely expensive over time, as various therapies, holistic methods, or healing processes may be the only treatments to offer you relief.
