In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some basics on timing when it comes to whiplash symptoms following a car accident or similar event. Delays in symptom onset are sometimes one of the more frustrating elements of dealing with whiplash, and such possible delays are part of what makes this condition so important to consider if you’ve been in an accident.
At Peterson Chiropractic, we’re here to provide quality whiplash treatments and other car accident symptom services for clients across Utah. In today’s part two of our series, we’ll look at some of the most common symptoms of whiplash and why looking out for them is so important following any kind of accident, plus how our team of chiropractors will assist you if you’re experiencing this condition.

As we noted in part one of our series, whiplash symptoms can sometimes be delayed — this could mean they don’t show up at all, but in other cases it may result in symptoms that are just a bit less noticeable than you might think. This makes paying attention to your body and any changes following an accident crucial.
Some of the most common symptoms of whiplash include:
