I got Whiplash at work and my neck has not been the same

by Roberta H

I GOT WHIPLASH AT WORK! AND MY NECK HAS NOT BEEN THE SAME. I HAD A (MRI) but they are saying everything is normal?

I still have great pain and it travels to different areas. And I hear crackling behind my ears and I have dizziness and headaches and my neck is still very sensitive. I dont know where to go from here!

I hope that maybe you can offer some good advise.

Hey Bobby.

I do have some thoughts and suggestions, but need some more info first.

1. What exactly did you do at work that caused this? Or said another way, what happened, exactly?

2. How bad is the pain?

3. Where exactly does it travel?

4. Is the pain constant, or does it come and go, and/or does it only hurt when you move, or?

5. Any other symptoms? Loss of range of motion, spasm, etc?

6. Briefly describe the dizzyness and headaches. And again, how bad, how long does it last, etc.

I have a good direction or two for you, but we will both benefit from me getting some more info first.

Also, I wouldn't worry about the MRI thing, I'm not at all surprised that whiplash damage didn't show up.

Please reply using the comment link below. Do not submit a new submission to answer/reply, it's too hard for me to find where it's supposed to go.

Hi Maria.

Do I read that right that you've been in multiple car accidents?

And you still have pain and problem.

Welcome to impact induced Tendonitis!

All forms of Tendonitis consist of three factors: muscle and conntective tissue tightness, a Process Of Inflammation, and nutritional insufficiency.

Make sure you know the answer to the question: What Is Tendonitis?

A Whiplash neck injury is a very common result of an impact from, for instance, a car accident. Whiplash often includes rip and tear of soft tissue in the neck and elsewhere.

It hurts.

Then as time passes, it can either continue to hurt or suddenly return from time to time. That's a function of the Pain Causing Dynamic.

Injured tissue heals (though scar tissue is more fragile than the original) but other negative factors remain and get progressively worse.

If you want to pay a therapist, I suggest a good massage therapist that is skilled and experienced with whiplash rehab work. Unless you're in Seattle (where I know a bunch of great therapists), you'll have to ask around and/or try a few out to see who's good.

Or you can do most/all of it yourself with my Reversing Whiplash ebook/program.

Do you have any symptoms down the arm?
