Whiplash is a condition that occurs when there is a rapid back and forth motion to the head that strains the muscles and joints in your neck.
Whiplash is a serious condition that is often over looked as less important. However this is not the case at all.
Whiplash can be an extremely serious matter that can even produce concussion-like symptoms such as severe headaches, constant aching pains, flashes in your eyes due to motion of the head and neck, radiating pain, and much more.
This can be caused by an occurrence such as an auto accident, hitting your head on something really hard or even just riding on a roller coaster.
The motion that causes whiplash is when your head is “whipped” forwards and backwards at an above average rate that causes a strain in your neck that can spread depending on the level of severity.
Some signs that this could be your case may be stiffness in the neck and shoulders, headaches, or decreased range of motion in the neck.
Without proper treatment, whiplash will rarely heal on its own, and, even if it does, you are placed at a higher risk in the future due to not properly treating this condition.
