Whiplash is a common auto accident injury that often happens when your vehicle is hit from behind. The impact causes your neck to forcefully move forward and backward, injuring the soft tissue in your neck. If left untreated, whiplash can lead to chronic neck pain and long-term complications.
Symptoms generally include neck pain, stiffness, and headaches. You may also experience limited range of motion such that you’re unable to turn your head all the way to the left or right without excruciating pain. Additionally, you can experience pain in your shoulders, arms, and at the base of your skull.
