The resulting instability of the spine and soft tissues can result in headaches, dizziness, blurred vision, pain in the shoulder, arms and hands, reduced ability to turn and bend, and even low back problems. As the body attempts to adapt, symptoms may not appear for weeks or even months later. This is a big risk when it comes to whiplash and car accidents. People underestimate what their bodies goes through when involved in a car accident (even at slow speed). We encourage everyone who is involved in an accident to get a check up as soon as possible from a spine specialist.
