headbanging -> whiplash (!?!?)
    #2064382 - 11/02/03 07:28 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

I feel so stupid. I got a little over zealous with the headbanging and now the muscles in my back right below my neck are really hurting, I haven't found any position yet that's comfortable. This sucks.

Does anyone know a good way to treat this, and any info on how long this will take to heal or if I should seek medical attention?

ugh...well I'm gonna try to go get some sleep now. Hopefully I'll be able to move comfortably in the morning.

Thanks for any help.

You'll be fine. Whiplash doesn't exist in countries where it's harder to sue people over car accidents, which should tell you something about the validity of whiplash.

Give it a few days and you'll be fine.

go see a chiropractor if it continues..... although some are pricks and will jack you for all your worth, there are a few out there that are actually serious about what they do... i fucked my back up really bad in my 8 years of wrestling, the docs want to do surgery but im really scared to let them take a knife to my back...plus they told me theres only a 60% chance the surgery will do any good... odds like that make me even more hesitant...im gonna put it off as long as i can. so i see a chiropractor pretty regular, 3 or 4 times a month, and she keeps the pain pretty much under wraps for me...

how's your WOW?

I'm going through the same thing. I was at a party on Friday night where a hardcore band was playing, and really fucked up my neck. I'm doing better now, but it still hurts.

you'll be fine.. just massage your neck, shoulders and lower cranium in circular motions with your fingers. there is a product called dit da jow which would help you, it is a liniment for sore muscles and tendons, effectively breaking up stagnant blood, lymph and chi circulation. It contains a variety of exotic chinese herbs combined with alcohol to accomplish its job. you can also make your own cheap jow at home using vaseline, vicks, cayenne pepper and red pepper.. but that's not really neccessary for you unless you need it. I've been to enough slayer and death metal shows banging my head senseless all night to feel the wrath of whiplash. Must learn the value of sensible moderate headbanging, so as not to damage the spine and bang the good old brain around eh?

You'll be fine. It took me about 4 days to properly recover from my last concert. I went a bit overboard, and only lasted 3 songs before having to retreat to the back and just watch. I couldn't move my neck anymore, so that was it. Somehow I screwed up my right arm too, because I couldn't move it properly for days.
If it lasts longer than a week or 2, then see a doctor. Discomfort for a few days is pretty normal, and should go away. Just take it easy and find some muscle ointment, which helps a wee bit.
And care to share these moderate headbanging techniques Shroomism? Might be something I don't already know and could come in handy next concert.

I can't headbang moderately cuz it's not something I think about. I just get totally absorbed in the music and go crazy.

Simple.. don't make violent, thrashing whipping motions with your head and neck.. it's not hard to tell if you're banging too hard.. you can still get the hair whipping motion and get into the groove without snapping your neck and straining the muscles to all hell.

A girl friend of mine got whiplash from headbanging in her car and had to be put in a neck brace.
