One of the most common neck injuries that affects nearly 200,000 a year in the United States is whiplash. Whiplash is normally caused by a rear-end motor vehicle accident – occurring when a person’s head moves backward and forward suddenly with extreme force.
Car accidents aren’t the only causes of whiplash. Contact sports, falls, and cycling accidents can also result in whiplash. It is said to be a relatively mild condition, but at times can result in long-term pain.
Some of the most common symptoms include:
- Neck pain & stiffness
- Blurred Vision
- Constant Weariness
Whiplash is treatable and normally heals on its own over time. For more severe injuries, physical therapy and prescription pain killers are prescribed.
