Whiplash caused by an abrupt and rocking motion of the head, often from a car accident.
Symptoms of whiplash can be delayed for up to 24 hours after the initial trauma.
Those symptoms include:
- Neck pain and stiffness
- Shoulder pain
- Low back pain
Individuals suffering from whiplash can have trouble concentrating or sleeping as well as cause irritability. These symptoms may be related to a concussion as well.
If left untreated, whiplash can become chronic, meaning that pain and symptoms can last longer than three months.
