Whiplash Injury

YOU THINK ABOUT IT EVERY TIME YOU TURN YOUR HEAD

Whiplash is a soft tissue injury to the neck. It is also known as neck sprain or strain. It usually occurrs when a victim is thrown forward and backward quickly. We usually see whiplash injuries in car accidents. Rear-end accidents and t-bone accidents are a common cause. Whiplash injuries can be made much worse if the victim’s head is facing to one side at the time of impact.

Whiplash injuries can happen at all speeds. Research has shown that whiplash can occur in crashes less than five miles per hour. A rear-end impact at only 10 miles per hour can whip your head with a force up to nine times the gravitational pull of the earth.

Symptoms may include neck stiffness, injuries to the muscles and ligaments (myofascial injuries), headache, dizziness, abnormal sensations like burning or prickling (paresthesias), or shoulder or back pain. Some folks also experience memory loss, inability to concentrate, irritability, nervousness, sleep disturbance, fatigue, or depression.

The good news is that whiplash alone generally has a very good prognosis. Within a few weeks to a few months, the symptoms improve with treatment. If the symptoms do not improve, there is likely a deeper problem that may require imaging to diagnose.
