Common symptoms of whiplash include:
- neck pain and tenderness
- neck stiffness and difficulty moving your head
- muscle spasms
- pain in the shoulders and arms
Less common symptoms include pins and needles in your arms and hands, dizziness, tiredness, memory loss, poor concentration and irritability.
It can take several hours for the symptoms to develop after you injure your neck. The symptoms are often worse the day after the injury, and may continue to get worse for several days.
If you are injured in accident and suspect a whiplash injury, please book an appointment. We may be able to diagnose using imaging and create treatment plan with physical therapy and braces.
