The pace of full recovery from a whiplash injury varies depending upon the severity of the condition and the physical health of the patient. Many people will recover within a few weeks, however, others suffer symptoms for up to a year or more. Severe or prolonged pain makes it difficult to carry out daily activities and enjoy recreational time. The effects of recurrent whiplash symptoms can make tasks at work and home hard to perform – leading to stress, anxiety, and depression.

Recurrent Whiplash Pain

A whiplash injury to the neck is caused by harsh, sudden movement of the head forward, backward – or – sideway. Whiplash has the effect of stretching and spraining the soft tissues in the neck.

Common symptoms of recurrent whiplash pain include:

  • Neck pain
  • Neck tenderness
  • Neck stiffness
  • Difficulty rotating head from side to side
  • Neck muscle spasm
  • Pain radiating to the shoulders and arms
  • Pins and needles in arms and hands
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Memory loss
  • Poor concentration
  • Irritability due to discomfort

After an accident or injury, it may take several hours/days/weeks for any one of these symptoms to develop. Most whiplash symptoms worsen in the days after the accident or injury.
