Most people associate whiplash with car accidents. Any event that causes the neck to move back and forth forcefully, however, can cause whiplash. Those events include sports injuries and assault. Although many people with whiplash do not experience symptoms immediately, seeing a chiropractor after an injury could help you recover sooner. Common Symptoms of Whiplash Whiplash causes new pain and stiffness, often with mobility issues. You may wake up the morning after your injury, only to find that you cannot turn your head. Other symptoms to look for include: Dizziness Fatigue Headaches Pain in your shoulders, arms, and back Burred vision Tinnitus (ringing in the ear) Some people even experience symptoms like depression, memory problems, and difficulty concentrating. Unfortunately, doctors cannot diagnose whiplash with x-rays or MRI scans. If you experience any of the above symptoms after an accident, assume that you have suffered damage to your connective tissues, muscles, joints, or even nervous system.
