Let’s talk about whiplash injuries today resolving from a car accident. These are, unquestionably, one of the more common types of injuries but they are also one of the more lightly regarded injuries too. A lot of times, people will go ahead and try to treat the injury themselves and thinking that it will go away. Unfortunately, many times, that is not the case and not only will the injury most times not go away, there are serious consequences physically to not treating the injury immediately after the accident.
What are the symptoms of whiplash?
There are several symptoms of whiplash. One could be neck stiffness, could be also pain that radiates from one arm, could also be headaches.
Can whiplash cause vision problems?
You may also experience vision or hearing problems. You may have a shooting pain radiating from one of the arms all the way down to the elbow. You may also experience, believe it or not, depression for an extended period of time after an automobile accident. As I said at the beginning of this video, these injuries are sometimes minimized and overlooked especially by the insurance companies.
