Been in an auto accident?

What causes whiplash after a car accident?

Most car accident victims don’t realize they have an issue until two or three days after the collision.

The reason for this delay is due to the time it takes for the inflammation of the small tears in the affected ligaments and muscles to build up and cause pain. When the fragile ligaments that support the neck are wounded, the muscles tighten in response.

Though this doesn’t feel pleasant, it’s the muscles’ way of protecting the damaged area from further trauma.

Are you suffering from whiplash?

Here are some early indicators:


Blurred Vision
