Whiplash, Posture and Neck Pain.

A large number of people that suffer from neck pain are victims of whiplash sustained in an auto accident or sports injury. However, symptoms associated with whiplash don’t always manifest as neck pain. For instance, headaches, arm pain and a feeling of arm heaviness or weakness, lower back pain, even cognitive impairment can be the result of whiplash. For this reason, an accurate diagnosis is essential to begin the process of properly treating a whiplash injury, no manner when you were first injured.
Equally important is the role posture plays in neck pain. People who sit for hours at a desk may develop neck pain due to muscle strain or misalignment in their vertebrae as a result of poor posture. Taking steps to ensure a more serious underlying problem isn’t responsible for your neck pain is important for identifying an effective treatment of your neck pain.
