Understanding Whiplash Injuries
Five Stars Personal Injury welcomes you to our Auto Accident Whiplash page, provided by Woodward Chiropractic & Massage. Our experienced team is dedicated to helping individuals who have suffered from the unfortunate consequences of auto accidents, specifically focusing on the common and often debilitating injury known as whiplash.
Whiplash is a prevalent injury caused by sudden, forceful movements of the neck and head, frequently occurring during rear-end collisions. The rapid back-and-forth motion of the neck can strain or tear the delicate ligaments, tendons, and muscles in the neck and upper back region.
Symptoms of Whiplash
Recognizing the symptoms of whiplash is crucial to ensuring timely treatment and a smooth recovery process. Common symptoms include:
- Neck Pain - experiencing stiffness, tenderness, or sharp pain in your neck
- Headaches - persistent or recurring headaches, often starting from the base of the skull
- Shoulder and Upper Back Pain - discomfort and limited mobility in the shoulders and upper back
- Dizziness and Fatigue - feeling lightheaded, dizzy, or excessively tired
- Jaw Pain - soreness or difficulty in opening and closing your mouth
- Numbness and Tingling - experiencing sensations of pins and needles in arms or hands
- Difficulty Concentrating - struggling to focus or remember information
