Typical Causes of Whiplash in Marietta

Whiplash is the non-medical term used to describe pain in the neck after an injury to the soft tissues of the neck occurs.


A variety of events can cause whiplash.


Whiplash occurs when an abnormal motion or force is applied to the neck that causes movement beyond its normal range of motion. 


The movement of the neck is similar to the cracking of a whip.


When this occurs, the muscles of the neck are pulled, and they become strained, which causes a whiplash injury to occur. 


This condition can sometimes take a couple of days to show symptoms, so it's important to pay attention to your body in the days following your accident.



In the article below, we discuss the three most common causes of whiplash that we see in our Marietta office, what to do following a whiplash injury in Marietta, and how to get your injuries treated.
