Whiplash

Whiplash, known simply as a neck strain or neck sprain, occurs when the body is suddenly accelerated and then decelerated. Most cases of Whiplash occur as auto accident injuries, resulting in damaged discs, ligaments, muscles and nerves in the neck. While many people don’t experience immediate symptoms, they often surface hours or days after the accident. Common symptoms of this condition include:

Whiplash Symptoms:

  • Neck pain or stiffness
  • Headaches
