We all think that we know the symptoms of a whiplash injury, but they can be more varied and more complicated than we expect. All symptoms can take time to become noticeable to the sufferer. Many are not felt directly after a crash, but can take up to 72 hours to begin to develop.

The symptoms in detail

Firstly let us begin with the most common symptoms of whiplash. These are well known to be neck pain, stiffness, tenderness and difficulty in moving the neck. These symptoms are sometimes accompanied by bruising and swelling, depending on the severity of the injury.

Common symptoms:

  • Neck pain and tenderness
  • Difficulty moving neck/stiffness
  • Bruising and swelling to the neck

Other symptoms

There are some more symptoms of a whiplash injury which are not as common or obvious as the neck pain.

  • Headaches
  • Back or shoulder pain
  • Pins and needles
  • Dizziness and blurred vision

We recommend that you seek proper medical advice whenever you suspect you may be suffering from whiplash. These less common symptoms are sometimes indicators of a more serious condition, and it is imperative to seek medical help and advice immediately.
