Whilst some cases of whiplash can resolve with some simple exercises, rest and pain medication, for some, there can be lasting effects which require a treatment plan including rehabilitation, conditioning and prescribed medication or injections.
The symptoms of whiplash are most commonly neck pain, ranging from mild neck stiffness or a reduced range of movement. There can be some instability in the neck, headaches or shoulder/upper back pain. In some cases, there can be weakness, some radiating pain or paraesthesia (pins and needles) into the shoulder or arms.
Whiplash is also known as cervical acceleration-deceleration (CAD) syndrome. It occurs when the neck and head are suddenly forced backwards and forwards, which puts the cervical spine through quick, extreme emotion and stress. Motor vehicle accidents cause most cases of whiplash.
