Whiplash pain is usually hard to overlook and it can be very intense. Symptoms range from pain and/or tenderness when rocking your head from side to side or front to back to decreased range of motion and stiffness, and muscles feeling knotted, and often incude headaches.
In some cases the pain of a neck strain is instantaneous. Other times it could be days before it starts annoying you.
Regardless of your how you feel, to confirm whether or not you have whiplash you need to be checked out by a healthcare professional. X-rays or another type of scan will probably be required. Since whiplash is typically caused by ligament strains in the neck during a car accident, it’s hard to accurately diagnose without really seeing what’s going on under the surface.
