But It Wasn’t a Serious Accident

Maybe you were involved in a low-speed fender bender. You may think that because you weren’t going fast that your body didn’t sustain any damage. It’s important to know that there’s no such thing as a “minor” auto accident. Ligaments and tendons in the neck can tear as a result of a low-speed rear-end collision.

Symptoms can arise months or even years later. If you’re involved in an auto accident, your risk of developing the following in the future could arise. Such issues include arthritis, degeneration, headaches, and neuropathy.

Whiplash-One of the Most Common Injuries

Your neck is comprised of seven bones that are stacked on top of each other. Between each level is a shock-absorbing disc. Your neck is fairly flexible, so it depends on your muscles and ligaments for support. “Whiplash” describes what takes place when the soft tissues of your neck are stretched too hard or too far. It’s similar to a rope that frays when it’s stretched beyond its capacity.

Auto accidents are the primary cause of whiplash. Up to 83 percent of people involved in an accident will sustain a whiplash injury.

What Are the Symptoms of Whiplash?

Symptoms may begin immediately or have a delayed start. You may experience ongoing dull neck pain that becomes sharper any time you move your head. You likely will feel the pain in the back of your neck but it can migrate to your shoulders or between your shoulder blades. Tension headaches often accompany neck injuries. Dizziness and TMJ problems may arise as well and other symptoms may increase over time.
