Car Accident Stiffness Could Be Whiplash

Your husband is a tough guy. You have seen him overcome many injuries. He has shaken off stubbed toes and smashed fingers like it’s nothing. However, now you are worried. He was recently in a car accident and doesn’t want to see a doctor.

He says he is fine, but a little stiff. You want him to see a doctor because you worry it could be something much worse. You’ve heard of whiplash, and wonder if that’s what is causing him pain.

What Is Whiplash?

Whiplash is a form of neck strain that happens when an individual’s head jerks in one direction. Your husband may not have felt any symptoms right after the accident. Whiplash can take hours and sometimes days before symptoms present themselves.

The Signs And Symptoms Of Whiplash

It’s possible that the stiffness your husband is feeling is whiplash. There are many symptoms of whiplash including:

  • Tightness
  • Pain
  • Loss of motion
  • Tenderness
  • Headache

If your husband has any of these symptoms, you should urge him to see a doctor. Whiplash could also mean that he has a concussion. Without treatment, your husband could suffer long-term. Treatments for whiplash vary. Your husband may not need to do much, so remind him of how much better he will feel when he is back to one-hundred percent. It’s possible that his medical bills will be covered if you and your husband file an insurance claim or personal injury claim. Don’t let him wait any longer. Have him see a doctor today.
