What is Whiplash?

Whiplash injuries can be severe or mild. It is a relatively common injury resulting from unrestrained sudden impact, when the head is thrown forwards, backwards or side to side. It is also the reason why many of those involved in motor vehicle accidents experience this type of injury.

A whiplash injury is an injury to the soft tissue in the neck. Given the necks flexibility, it is common for this type of sprain to occur from collisions in cars. Whiplash does not discriminate and can occur from collisions at different speeds.
