If you are involved in a car accident you may get a Whiplash injury. This type of injury is caused by a sudden jerking of the head and neck. This type of injury more often occurs in rear impact crashes. After the accident you may suffer aches and pains around the neck. The injury suffered is referred to as a “soft tissue” injury as whiplash affects the neck muscles, ligaments and joints but not usually the bones.
When involved in a “rear end shunt” accident the head is whipped backwards as the body goes forwards, before being whipped forwards again upon the motion of the body stopping suddenly. It most often occurs during sudden braking causing the driver or passengers to jolt forwards.
Problems associated with whiplash include constant neck pain, restricted movement of the head, shoulder pain, dizziness, heavy arms and even tinnitus.
