9 Symptoms of Whiplash

2. Arm Pain

Just like with neck pain, arm pain is caused by the muscles in your arm tensing before impact from another vehicle. Signs of arm pain include feeling like your arm is stiff, inability to move your arm in any direction and your skin or muscles being sensitive to touch. While range of motion exercises can help to stretch the muscles and eventually give relief to the pain, professional medical help will be needed for a holistic solution to arm pain, or any symptom. Unresolved arm pain can lead to further chronic pain in your future unless you get it treated as soon as possible.
