Whiplash injuries include any trauma that leads to tearing of the soft tissue of the neck region, most commonly from rear-end car collisions. Inflammation, pain and decreased range of motion in your neck may result. Symptoms typically appear hours to days following an accident and include: neck & mid back pain, head pain, arm pain, muscle spasm, and headaches.
It's always a good idea to check in with your chiropractor or primary care physician after an accident. For more information schedule an appointment online or give the office a call at 585.458.2679.
