What is Whiplash?
Whiplash isn't a specific disease process, but rather a syndrome of often debilitating signs and symptoms that occur after the neck is forced into a "whip-like" movement. This rapid and often violent flexion and extension of the neck commonly occur during an auto accident, slip and fall, sports collision, or some other personal injury involving sudden deceleration or acceleration of the body.
The whip-like movement of the neck can impose high levels of force and tension on the many different tissues and around the cervical spine. Ultimately, it's this tension that leads to tissue inflammation and damage. Often, muscles, ligaments, and tendons become strained, joints and cervical discs are jolted out of alignment, and cervical spinal nerves become pinched.
Signs and Symptoms of Whiplash—And Why They May Not Always Show Up Right Away
The main signs and symptoms of whiplash (which can vary in intensity and type) include:
- Neck pain and stiffness
- Shoulder pain and stiffness
- Jaw pain
- Insomnia and mental fogginess
- Ringing in the ears
- Numbness, tingling, and pain in the arm or hand
These symptoms may not show up immediately after an accident...even if an injury has occurred. It's because stress hormones can hide pain and may take some time to revert back to their pre-trauma levels. This is why it's so important to see a chiropractor as soon as possible following a traumatic incident. You just never know if you're walking around with underlying injury or inflammation!
