Whiplash

Whiplash is a fairly common injury that occurs when a person's neck suddenly accelerates or decelerates most commonly from car accidents. The term "whiplash injury" refers to injury to both the bony and soft tissue structures. Fortunately, most people involved in car accident and who suffer whiplash injuries recover quickly without chronic symptoms. While most people recover quickly from whiplash injuries, some continue to experience symptoms many years after the accident.

As stated, whiplash injury is most commonly caused by car accidents in which the person riding is not moving and is struck from behind by another vehicle without notice. The thinking is that the rear impact causes the head and neck to be forced into hyperextension as the seat pushes the person's torso forward – and the unrestrained head and neck fall backwards. After a short delay, the head and neck and then thrown into a hyperflex position. Some of the symptoms of whiplash include the following:

  • neck pain and stiffness
  • headache
  • shoulder pain and stiffness
  • dizziness
  • fatigue
  • jaw pain
  • arm pain
  • arm weakness
  • ringing in the ears
  • back pain
  • depression
  • anger
  • frustration
  • anxiety
  • stress
  • drug dependency
  • sleep disturbance

Treatment for whiplash can include physical therapy, chiropractic treatment and immobilization.
