What Is Whiplash Injury?
Whiplash is injury to the neck the typically occurs as a result of an auto accident. An accident involving rear impact is most likely to cause neck strains (whiplash), and neck sprains – even in a slow moving collision. Contact sports or falling off of a horse are also known to cause whiplash injuries. The sudden force causes your head to jerk backward or forward. Your neck is forced beyond its normal range of motion, resulting in soft tissue injury such as stretched or torn muscles, tendons or ligaments.
