Typical signs of Whiplash


Usually, symptoms of a whiplash injury take from 12 to 24 hours to manifest. Any swelling or bruising to the neck muscles won’t be immediately seen at the accident scene. The discomfort, agony, and stiffness typically get a lot worse the next day and may worsen over time.

When suffering from whiplash, a person might experience:

      • Loss (or reduction) of neck mobility
      • Headaches
      • Stiff neck
      • Neck rigidity
      • Tenderness at the back of the neck.

More serious whiplash warning signs and symptoms include:

      • Lower backache
      • Discomfort in the hands and arms
      • Arms and hands may experience numbness or pins and needles.
      • Muscles cramping
      • Fatigue
      • Swallowing problems
      • Disruptions in sleep

There is also a chance of these less typical indications and symptoms and may be related to a concussion:

      • Dizziness
      • Nausea
      • Irritability
      • Loss of memory
      • Inadequate attention
      • Vision issues (vision may be blurred)
      • Sensation of movement or spinning (vertigo)
      • Hearing ringing (tinnitus)
