Whiplash-associated injuries are the result of an abrupt, back-and-forth motion of the head, similar to a whip, due to an extreme force acting against the body. Because of the force from the impact of a car crash, for instance, the muscles, ligaments and other complex tissues in the neck can stretch, or sprain, beyond their natural range, occasionally causing tears.
Neck sprains, or whiplash, are actually considerably common. Many individuals who unfortunately experience an unexpected automobile accident develop symptoms of neck pain with or without other injuries. It’s been previously concluded that women tend to be more prone than men to suffer from whiplash-associated injuries as the structures of their body can be relatively different.
After being involved in a minor auto collision where the vehicle only sustained minimal damage, many people are often surprised to still have developed symptoms of whiplash. Including slow vehicle bumps may cause a sufficient enough jerking motion of the neck to cause symptoms.
Although less frequently, a whiplash-associated injury can also occur as a result of a sports injury or from strenuous physical activity. Some people have also reported injury from an everyday activity where the neck is suddenly jerked after a trip or fall.
Dr. Alex Jimenez D.C.,C.C.S.T’s insight:
Whiplash can commonly be the result of an automobile accident. While the symptoms for this type of injury generally ease on their own without the need of specific treatment, it is recommended to maintain the normal mobility of the neck and seek medical attention immediately.
