A sudden movement of the head; backward, forward, or sideways, can damage the supporting muscles, ligaments and other connective tissues in the neck and upper back. Whiplash is usually the result of a rear-end collision while in a static position. Unfortunately, by the time serious complications have developed, much of the damage may have become permanent.
Numerous studies have shown that years after whiplash victims settle their insurance claims; roughly, half still suffer the symptoms of their injuries. If you have been involved in a motor vehicle, or any other kind of accident, don’t assume that you’ve escaped injury even though you are not in pain.
