What does a neck injury feel like?
Any trauma to the neck should always be thoroughly investigated by a medical practitioner, as serious and life threatening injuries could have been caused to the delicate nerves in the cervical spine.
Typical neck injuries such as whiplash may not be diagnosed at the time of the accident as the symptoms may not be apparent at the scene. Injuries such as whiplash are soft tissue injuries which take some time to become apparent and are usually diagnosed the day following the accident.
Symptoms may include:
- severe pain across the neck, upper back, shoulders and tops of the arms
- severe stiffness across the neck, upper back, shoulders and tops of the arms
- inability to rotate and nod the head
What is a whiplash injury and how is it caused?
Whiplash is an injury that is commonly associated with injuries involving high impact collisions such as those caused in road traffic accidents. Whiplash occurs because the delicate soft tissues in the neck are violently and suddenly thrust in awkward directions, causing them to overstretch and tear. This damage caused to the neck tissue is what is known as a whiplash injury and this should be examined and diagnosed by a medical practitioner.
However, despite being closely linked to road traffic accidents, other types of accidents can cause this painful condition to develop.
- sporting injuries such as heavy contact sports like rugby and boxing
- work related injuries involving collisions with heavy machinery
- falls from height especially onto hard surfaces
- cycling accidents involving collisions with stationary and moving objects
