Whiplash, one of the most frequently suffered car accident injuries, is often downplayed because it is so short-lived. In essence, whiplash can be a longterm injury and the causation of many other physical complaints, including spinal and posture problems. Whiplash is triggered by an over-stretching of the neck ligaments, usually if the head/ neck has been thrown forward or backward at force.
Symptoms of whiplash:
- Inability to turn the neck without serious pain or discomfort.
- Prolonged or acute pain.
- Persistant aching and stiffness, usually coupled with restricted movement.
- Restricted movement.
- Tinnitus, or ringing in the ears.

The neck is an oft overlooked, yet critical part of the human body. It is the body’s main junction, responsible for channeling oxygen into the body and blood to the brain, as well as keeping the spine taught for better posture. Any injury to the neck is painful, yet whiplash is often classified as minor because it rarely contributes to a more serious condition. In fact, a whiplash injury can be exacerbated many years down the line, leading to untold number of additional health issues.
Left untreated or ignored, whiplash may contribute to:
- Misalignment of the cervical (upper) spine
- Longterm scoliosis
- Limited mobility
- Chronic headaches and migraine
- Spinal facet joint damage
- Ligament rupture
- Damaged vertebrae
Unsure whether you are suffering from a whiplash related injury? Left untreated, whiplash can be the causation of many other health problems, therefore we advise seeking medical attention at your earliest opportunity.
