What is Whiplash?
The most common injury sustained in vehicle collisions is whiplash. Whiplash occurs when one vehicle strikes the other from behind. Whiplash can occur in collisions which happen at speeds as slow as five miles per hour! Many individuals involved in these minor fender benders do not seek medical treatment, believing they leave the incident unharmed, only to develop symptoms days, weeks, or months after the accident.
Whiplash describes the injury which occurs when the neck hyperflexes and hyperextends in a whip-like motion, stretching and tearing soft tissues in the area. Whiplash typically does not present symptoms immediately after the injury, with symptoms sometimes occurring up to a month after the injury is sustained. Symptoms of whiplash include headaches, muscle pain and stiffness, loss of flexibility, and tingling and numbness. If left untreated, it can lead to insomnia, depression, and severe anxiety.
