Whiplash Is More Than A Pain in the Neck

Whiplash is more than just a pain in the neck.

 

Also called neck sprain or neck strain, whiplash is characterized by a collection of symptoms that occur following damage to the neck. This is due to the sudden back and forth motion of a trauma like a car accident.

 

Just about two-thirds of people involved in motor vehicle accidents will develop symptoms of whiplash. 

 

However, whiplash symptoms usually take a few hours or days after the injury to show up.

 

Although very prevalent in car accidents, whiplash can also occur from falls, sports injuries, work injuries, and other traumas to the neck.
