A neck injury can range from cervical sprains and strains to disc injuries and spinal cord damage. Some common symptoms of a neck injury include sharp pain, headaches, soreness, numbness, nausea, tiredness or difficulty sleeping, and pain or problems with movement. Even if a car accident may not seem severe at the time, it is essential to watch for any of the symptoms previously discussed and seek medical attention promptly.
