Whiplash is a serious injury, but you may not have symptoms right away. For that reason, if you've been in an accident and think you may have whiplash, make an appointment to see your doctor or spine specialist.

Uzroci trzajne ozljede

Most simply described, whiplash is caused by a motion or force that makes your neck move beyond its normal range of motion. As you can learn in the Anatomy of Whiplash article, your neck, or cervical spine, has an incredible range of motion. It's the most moveable part of your spine, but still, whiplash can cause the neck to go beyond its normal range.

Simptomi trzajne ozljede

When you get whiplash, you'll know what caused it. But you may not feel the symptoms of it until sometime later. Symptoms can appear as soon as two hours after your car accident or other injury, but you may experience symptoms that start mildly and gradually become worse. Symptoms can sometimes develop days, weeks, or even months after the initial injury.
