Whiplash is the most common type of soft tissue injury associated with an auto accident. It’s a unique injury that occurs most often to drivers and passengers involved in rear-end collision automobile collision. The injury occurs when the force from the impact causes the head to snap violently back and forward.
You can experience whiplash even if you were not involved in a high-speed auto accident. Even at low speeds, the unexpected impact can cause injury to vertebrae, muscles, and ligaments in the neck. It’s important to note that while whiplash injuries most often result from car accidents, they can occur in any situation where a sudden back and forth “whipping” movement occurs in the neck area, including slips, falls, blows to the head from an assault, and injuries suffered through participation in sports activities.
Whiplash may not be immediately detected. If you were involved in an automobile accident, your natural physiological responses and the “heat of the moment” may not allow you to relax and thus realizing that you have neck or back pain. However, over the course of the next few days after the accident, you might experience any or all of the following which is an indication of whiplash:
- Tightness and stiffness in the neck
- Serious neck pain (dull and aching, rather than sharp)
- Dizziness and problems with balance and equilibrium
- Head aches
- Back pain
- Memory problems or difficulty with concentration
