The symptoms of whiplash generally occur immediately after the automobile accident, but occasionally, these can take several hours or even days to develop.
If you have been involved in a car crash, it’s important to take prompt action in order to minimize the recovery time. According to research presented at the World Congress on Neck Pain in Los Angeles, the initial level of pain after a whiplash-related injury as well as psychological factors, such as having positive expectations for getting better, can best predict which individuals will recover quickly from whiplash.
Most cases will resolve in a matter of a few days while others may take weeks or longer to heal. It’s always recommended to seek professional medical attention after experiencing pain and discomfort, but in the meantime, the individual can utilize home remedies to relieve their symptoms while they begin their recovery process.
Dr. Alex Jimenez D.C.,C.C.S.T’s insight:
Although generally associated with automobile accidents, any impact or blow to the head that causes it to jolt back-and-forth can cause neck strain, otherwise known as whiplash. The abrupt force stretches and often even tears the muscles, tendons and other tissues in the neck. In fact, whiplash is the most common type of injury as a result of an auto collision.
