Causes and Symptoms of Whiplash and Neck Injuries in Car Accidents

shutterstock_159730694Whiplash is a neck injury that results from fast and forceful back and forth motion of the neck – like cracking a whip. The most common cause of whiplash is rear end collision automobile accidents.

The impact of the collision when a car is hit by another vehicle from behind causes the head to snap back and then forward, spraining or straining the neck.

An automobile accident victim who has sustained whiplash may not feel it immediately after the accident, as symptoms usually develop within 24 hours of the injury, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Although not everyone will experience all of the following, whiplash symptoms may include: pain and stiffness of the neck, loss of range of motion, worsening of pain with movement of the neck, headaches, pain or tenderness in the arms, shoulders, or upper back, numbness or tingling in the arms, dizziness, fatigue, ringing in the ears, blurred vision, irritability, trouble concentrating, memory difficulties, sleep disturbances, and depression.
