When should I see a doctor for a Whiplash Injury?

You should see a physician for a Whiplash Injury immediately following your accident. Do not hesitate to go to the Emergency Room or to call 911 to be taken to the Emergency Room. A medic team will support your neck and brace it with a cervical collar so that you can be safely transported.

You should not diagnose your injury yourself. Traumatic brain injuries, concussions and spinal cord injuries need to be diagnosed by a physician.

In the case of sports injuries, falls or less severe car accidents, the Emergency medics may not be called so phone your own personal doctor and ask to be seen as soon as possible. You should phone 911 if immediately if you experience any of the following immediately following your accident:

  • neck pain
  • dizziness
  • head pain
  • pain in the arms or legs, tingling in the limbs or loss of unction
  • shoulder pain
