What you need to know about Whiplash
Whiplash is caused by a person’s head suddenly moving backwards and then forward with considerable force. A rear-end accident is the most typical cause of this injury. Physical abuse, sports injuries, and even amusement park rides can cause it.
Whiplash occurs when your neck’s soft tissues (muscles and ligaments) are stretched beyond their normal range of motion. Because your symptoms may not present for a while, it’s critical to monitor any physical changes for a few days after a car accident or other injury.
Whiplash is a relatively minor injury, yet it can result in long-term pain and discomfort.
