10 Signs You Need Whiplash Treatment after a Car Accident

Written By Active Health on October 24, 2019

whiplash treatmentFlorida is one of the most dangerous states in the country for drivers. 

In 2018 alone, over 254,000 people sustained injuries from auto accidents on Florida roads. Over 16 thousand of those injuries happened in Palm Beach County alone.

You can’t control how other drivers behave. You can, however, take charge of your own health by seeking whiplash treatment after an accident – regardless of whether you “feel fine.”

10 Symptoms of Whiplash You Shouldn’t Ignore

Symptoms of whiplash are typically extremely subtle. 

  1. Headaches (that often start at the base of your skull)
  2. Blurred vision
  3. Shoulder pain or tension
  4. Tingling or numbness in your arms or hands (which suggests pinched nerves in the neck)
  5. Neck pain or stiffness 
  6. Stiffness or pain gets worse with neck movement
  7. Dizziness
  8. Fatigue or sleeping problems
  9. Trouble concentrating 
  10. Memory issues

Some cervical (neck) injuries from whiplash are so subtle that x-rays or MRI can’t find them. That’s why prompt and proactive treatment is critical for avoiding long-term neck pain.
