Have you been in an auto accident and experienced injuries? Neck pain is a common symptom of whiplash, an injury that occurs when your neck is suddenly and forcefully jerked forward or snapped backward. This motion can create tears in your neck’s muscles, ligaments and tendons, causing pain and limited mobility.
Whiplash most often occurs as the result of a car accident or during high-impact sports activities.
Symptoms of whiplash include tenderness, stiffness, and pain when you turn your head, as well as headache pain that starts at the base of your neck and radiates throughout your head. You may also experience tightness in your neck that restricts your motion. Read more about whiplash on our site, here.
