Whiplash is also referred to as cervical sprain and strain. It is one of the more common injuries when involved in a motor vehicle accident.
The signs and symptoms of whiplash injury may occur immediately or minutes to hours after the initial injury; the sooner after the injury that symptoms develop, the greater the chance of serious damage. The signs and symptoms of whiplash are as follows:
- Neck pain
- Neck swelling
- Tenderness along the back of your neck
- Muscle spasms (in the side or back of your neck)
- Difficulty moving your neck around
- Pain shooting from your neck into either shoulder or arm
