Sometimes injury, even serious injury, can be hard to detect. It is important to pay close attention to your body and be aware of potential signs. Neck injuries are very common place, especially after car accidents or bad falls. You may not realize at the time that your neck has been injured. You may not even feel any acute pain, but that does not necessarily mean that everything is fine. Here are 5 signs that you may have a neck injury:
1. Severe pressure in your neck, head or back.
2. Weakness & paralysis in any area of the body.
3. Numbness in your extremities.
