Neck pain is never ideal, especially when it’s due to whiplash. Caused by rapid back-and-forth head movement, whiplash can produce symptoms from mild discomfort to severe pain. Whatever you’re experiencing, you can seek treatment from the dependable doctors at Premier Bone & Joint Centers. Located in Riverton, we provide whiplash treatment and other orthopedic care that’s worthy of Wyoming.
What Are the Signs of Whiplash?
Whiplash is often easy to identify because it’s typically caused by some type of trauma such as a car or sports accident or a significant fall. This injury also presents common symptoms like:
- Pain and stiffness in the neck
- Headaches, most often starting at the base of the skull
- Loss of range of motion in the neck
- Tenderness or pain in the shoulders, upper back, or arms
- Tingling or numbness in the arms
If you’re dealing with these symptoms after recently suffering a traumatic injury to your head or neck, there’s a strong chance that you’ve experienced whiplash. To receive an accurate diagnosis, though, you should come to Premier Bone & Joint Centers.
