Car Crashes Hurt! That sudden unexpected impact of your car being hit from behind by another vehicle. What first sets in is shock. Then the symptoms. You develop a massive headache. If you do not seek immediate medical attention chronic pain will start to set in.
Whiplash symptoms include:
discomfort in your neck and shoulder muscles.
A tingling or numb feeling running down your arms.
Neck and joint stiffness.
The impact of a rear end collision can thrust the head and neck with such a jolt causing a large strain on muscles and ligaments adding added stress to your spine.
Whiplash symptoms begin almost immediately after an accident. You;ll know if you have whiplash the discomfort and pain will be unbearable and you will require the attention of a pain doctor that specializes in car accident injuries.
Your doctor will probably prescribe physical therapy. A pain management physician will set up a treatment program that will include stimulation of your joints and muscles as well including ensure that your cervical spine is properly aligned.
If you have recently been injured in a car accident and are experiencing symptoms such as numbness or tingling, pain shooting down the arm, blurry vision, buzzing sounds, or dizziness, contact a medical doctor immediately to schedule and appointment for proper treatment. Not just any doctor will do.
