How dangerous is whiplash?

One of the most common physical ailments people discover following a car crash is whiplash. Some reports estimate that over one million people in the United States suffer from whiplash every year. It is vital to receive treatment immediately after whiplash because the symptoms can be severe. 

Car accidents can lead to numerous health problems, from traumatic brain injuries to knee pain. Even if you feel all right following a crash, it is still a good idea to visit a doctor afterward to make sure you are actually fine. If a doctor discovers something developed as a result of whiplash, it will be easier to treat sooner rather than later. 

What are the signs of whiplash?

Whiplash occurs when a person makes a sudden, forceful jerking movement. This often happens in car accidents because the car is moving at 40 miles per hour one second and then immediately drops to zero miles per hour. You can tell you experienced whiplash if you notice any of the following. 

  • Blurred vision
  • Headaches
  • Loss of motion 
  • Dizziness
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Neck stiffness and pain

These symptoms may be readily noticeable right after the crash, or they can take weeks to manifest. You should see a doctor within 72 hours of the crash so that there is a doctor's report on the record in case you need to take a claim to your insurance agency or attorney. 

What are the dangers of untreated whiplash?

Whiplash most often affects soft tissue instead of bones. Therefore, if you do not treat it promptly, it can lead to chronic neck and back pain. Chronic headaches that do not go away with standard pain relievers are also a possibility. Some people involved in a car accident may develop vertigo, which is the sensation of falling or spiraling even when you are perfectly still. Even if a doctor does not find anything wrong with you, you can at least enjoy peace of mind.
