This is a common neck injury. It happens when
your neck jerks back and forth quickly and violently.
Your spine bends past its normal range of motion.
This can injure the vertebrae of your cervical spine.
It can damage the supporting ligaments and
muscles in your neck. It can also damage structures within the joints of your neck called "Facet Joints"
Whiplash is commonly caused by rear-end collision
automobile accidents. It can be caused by the quick
jerking of a rollercoaster ride. It can be caused by
contact sports such as football. It can also be
caused by physical abuse.
Whiplash can be very painful. You may feel pain
and stiffness in your neck at the time of your injury,
or it may begin days later. You may also have pain
in your shoulders, back and arms. You may not be
able to twist or bend your neck normally. You may
have headaches and dizziness. Some people also
experience complications with hearing, vision or
memory. These can become chronic problems.
Treatment options may initially include rest, medications
and injections. You may benefit from a soft cervical
collar. Physical therapy can also be an important
part of your recovery. At times, symptoms of neck pain and Whiplash related Headaches do not respond to these treatment and advanced treatments such as cervical facet injections and trigger point injections might be necessary. A NorTex healthcare provider can
