Symptoms of Whiplash may occur immediately after the injury or sometimes they do not occur for a few hours, days or weeks. Generally, the sooner the symptoms occur, the more severe the injury is. However, in car accident cases, accident victims may feel “ok” immediately after the accident because of adrenalin and stress caused by the accident which masks the initial pain.<h4Symptoms can include a combination of the following:
- limited range of motion in the neck and head
- pain in the neck
- tenderness to the neck
- headaches and migraines
- muscle spasms in the neck
- shooting pain in the arms and shoulders emanating from the neck.
- numbness or tingling in the arms or fingers.
