People hurt in car crashes, especially rear-enders or rear impact crashes, often complain of neck pain, headaches, dizziness, memory problems, unsteadiness, fatigue, and low back pain. Very often, the symptoms of whiplash injury do not appear immediately but are delayed 24 to 48 hour or more. Although this phenomenon is poorly understood on a physiological basis, it has been well documented in the clinical literature and is well understood by chiropractors in private practice. Usually, the first symptoms are neck stiffness and a feeling of muscle spasm or tightness. This is often accompanied by a reduction in range of motion of the neck. In many cases, patients experience pain radiating into the shoulders or down the arms. In other cases, various neurological complaints such as numbness or tingling in the arms or hands may be present. While these symptoms may be brief and self-limiting, meaning that they will eventually resolve by themselves, they could also be signs of more serious injury, such as spinal cord injury, nerve root injury, or ligament injury requiring professional treatment by a chiropractor. To be safe, it is best to err on the side of caution and always consult a chiropractor skilled and experienced in diagnosing and managing this type of condition.
