Whiplash and Auto Accident Injuries
Whiplash is caused by a sudden movement of the body and head, either backward, forward, or sideways that results in the damage to the supporting muscles, ligaments and other connective tissues in the neck and back.
Unfortunately, by the time more serious complications develop, some of the damage from the injury may have become permanent. Numerous studies have shown that years after whiplash victims settle their insurance claims, roughly half of them state that they still suffer with symptoms from their injuries. If you have been in a motor vehicle or any other kind of accident, don't assume that you escaped injury if you are not currently in pain.
Signs of whiplash?
- An inability to turn your head
- Tingling, pain or numbness in your arms and legs
- Headaches or migraines
- Vision or hearing disturbances
- Neck and low back pain
- Cognitive problems
