Whiplash and Its Effects On the Body

When you have neck pain due to an accident, it may be more than you realize.

Whiplash injures occur when there is a sudden force and movement from an unrestrained head and neck. The soft tissues of the neck become damaged from the sudden movement, causing injury to the muscles and ligaments in that area.

However, what many people don’t realize is that with whiplash injuries, there are many other injuries that can take place throughout the body.

As the PDF attachment demonstrates, a whiplash involves more than neck pain. Widespread injuries throughout the body can occur, causing serious impairment of bodily functions. This can result in a host of problems ranging from loss of productivity at work to significant pain and suffering.
