Car Accidents Q & A

What is whiplash?

Whiplash is a neck injury that most often occurs after you’ve been rear-ended in a car accident. This injury gets its name from the rapid back-and-forth motion of your neck, which resembles the cracking of a whip.

Neck pain is the most common symptom of whiplash. Other whiplash symptoms include:

  • Neck stiffness
  • Reduced range of motion
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Tingling in the arms
  • Upper back pain
  • Shoulder pain

Usually, whiplash symptoms develop within 24 hours after the accident, but this isn’t always the case. Several weeks or months may go by before you begin to feel the pain and symptoms of whiplash.

The delayed onset of whiplash often causes people to put off seeking medical treatment, but this may lead to serious, permanent damage.

Even if you think you’re okay, it’s a good idea to schedule an appointment with the experienced team at Advanced Spine Care and Pain Management. They develop a customized treatment plan to ensure your best possible recovery.


What other injuries can a car accident cause?

Though whiplash is probably the most well-known, there are many ways you can get injured in an auto accident. Trauma to your head, neck, back, and even knees can occur during a car crash. Common car accident injuries include:

  • Herniated disc
  • Concussion
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Spinal injury
  • ACL tear

Without treatment, these injuries may become progressively worse. That’s why it’s critical to have the expert team at Advanced Spine Care and Pain Management evaluate your condition and initiate prompt treatment.

What should I do if I think I have a car accident injury?
