Why You Shouldn’t Leave Whiplash Untreated


Countless Americans have experienced the symptoms of whiplash following an accident or injury caused by a neck sprain, typically after the head is jolted forward and back in a snapping motion. Deceptively harmless, whiplash can take days or weeks for symptoms to appear. In fact, many people do not realize they are suffering from whiplash until it is too late. Despite how slight or inoffensive whiplash may feel, there are significant risks in failing to seek medical attention after an accident. Even if you don’t think you have been injured severely enough to warrant any treatment or care, you cannot hope your injuries will go away on their own. If left untreated, whiplash can quickly worsen and lead to more serious health complications.

Know the Signs

Though whiplash can happen in nearly any situation, it is most commonly the result of car accidents, especially rear-end crashes. If you sustain any of the following symptoms after an accident, you may be suffering from whiplash:

  • Pain and stiffness in your neck, shoulders, or jaw
  • Headaches
  • Sore neck and back muscles
  • Tingling or numbness in your arms, hands, or shoulders
  • Fatigue or dizziness
  • Double vision
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Sleep disturbances
