Whiplash and Concussion Management

You might have had an automobile accident which could have led to a concussion, but what’s the possibility of not having whiplash injuries together with a concussion? Forceful movement of your neck, which is connected to your brain, can affect the nerves and cause whiplash.

Although, when you suffer from a concussion, there is a high chance of having a whiplash injury. But if you are suffering from a whiplash injury, there’s a low possibility of concussion. However, a concussion can be developed due to significant trauma to the head, which can further cause whiplash at a low velocity.

If you had an automobile accident and wondering if you are suffering whiplash or concussion, or you are feeling pain, headache, dizziness, or noticing some changes in your behavioral and cognitive functions, contact Momentum Spine and Sports Physiotherapy Clinic today! We’ll help you to recover swiftly from your problem.

What’s the difference between whiplash and concussion?

When a sudden impact or force causes the head to move suddenly or jerk, it can result in neck strain. As a result of the effect of strain on the neck muscles and tendons, a condition known as whiplash can occur.

It has been observed that one of the leading causes of whiplash is an auto collision. When a victim experiences an automobile accident, they might experience a rear-end collision that’s an impact from behind, which pushes the neck forward and backward at a quick interval. When this happens, whiplash is likely to occur. Some of the common signs and symptoms of whiplash include back pain, headaches, ringing in the ears, dizziness, and neck pain. You must know that signs or symptoms may not happen for a while following the accident when suffering from whiplash. Therefore, we urge you to seek medical attention immediately once you have an auto collision because some of these symptoms do delay before becoming noticeable.

Concussions are mild traumatic brain injuries caused by falls, sports injuries, or even car accidents. It is highly common in sporting activities, especially football. While in a car accident, it is caused due to impact force experienced when your head hits parts of a vehicle component. When someone suffers from a concussion, some common symptoms are nausea, neck pain, headache, blurred vision, easily confusion, and more. Once you have an accident, visit a clinic immediately for a concussion test. This will help you to know whether you have a concussion or any underlying condition.
