What is whiplash?
Whiplash is a specific kind of neck injury. In particular, the muscles in the neck are strained or sprained due to rapidly moving forward and backward in a car accident. Whiplash injuries are especially common in rear-end car accidents. That’s because the driver or passenger in the vehicle struck from behind often gets thrust forward quickly in such a crash.
You can sustain a whiplash injury in any type of car accident – from head-on collisions to T-bone car accidents, in which one car crashes into the side of another. That’s why it’s important to seek immediate medical treatment after your car accident.
What are common symptoms of whiplash?
Warning signs that you may have whiplash injury due to a car accident include:
- Neck pain
- Neck stiffness
- Limited range of motion in your neck
You know your body best. If something feels wrong, seek immediate medical treatment. What might seem like a minor ache or pain could be whiplash or another type of serious neck injury, including a spinal cord injury or damage to the vertebrae (bones) in your neck.
